Director Jim Jarmusch is currently having quite a busy year. He has two films set for release: “Paterson,” starring Adam Driver as a bus driver and poet living in New Jersey, and the documentary “Gimme Danger,” which recounts the history of Iggy Pop and The Stooges. Forming the band in the late 1960’s, Iggy Pop was a provocateur, performing half-naked and stage diving while confronting the audience with such classic numbers as “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “Search and Destroy,” and “Raw Power.” Featuring brand-new interviews with Iggy Pop, Jarmusch looks back at one of the seminal American rock bands, their impact on the culture, and the circumstances of their reformation in 2003. Check out two exclusive images from the film below.

This is Jarmusch’s second music documentary. His first is entitled “Year of the Horse,” which followed Neil Young and Crazy Horse on their 1996 tour. The director is best known for his film “Stranger Than Paradise,” “Down By Law,” “Dead Man,” and most recently, “Only Lovers Left Alive.”
