‘GIMME DANGER’ – the story of The Stooges

Feast notes that the Cannes Film Festival is going to get ‘loose’ next week, thanks to a special midnight premiere of Jim Jarmusch’s Stooges-centric documentary, “Gimme Danger.”
The film aims to “presents the context of the Stooges’ emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.”
Of the project, Jarmusch has commented: “No other band in rock’n’roll history has rivaled The Stooges’ combination of heavy primal throb, spiked psychedelia, blues-a-billy grind, complete with succinct angst-ridden lyrics, and a snarling, preening leopard of a front man who somehow embodies Nijinsky, Bruce Lee, Harpo Marx, and Arthur Rimbaud. There is no precedent for The Stooges, while those inspired by them are now legion.”
I think this is what Jarmusch means:

Hopefully, we’ll get to see the film this Summer!!
