“This is a history lesson that, conventional or not, rocks hard. It can’t help it.”—Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com

Rising out of the underbelly of Ann Arbor, Michigan during the countercultural revolution of the late 1960s, the seminal band The Stooges made an indelible mark on the history of music. Combining rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band influenced the ensuing punk and alternative rock movements for decades.

Director Jim Jarmusch explores what made the band, headed by Iggy Pop, one of the greatest musical, cultural, political, and historical signifiers across generations. Despite troubles with drugs, alcohol, record labels, and line-up changes, Jarmusch shows, through interviews and archival footage, how the band’s legacy brought them together for a late-in-life revival. A selection of the Toronto and New York film festivals. 2016, U.S., DCP, 108 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
