One of the few rockumentaries with some justification for its claim to profile the greatest rock’n’roll band in history, Jim Jarmusch’s terrific new film on The Stooges centres around a fascinating, intimate interview with his friend, James ‘Iggy Pop’ Osterberg. Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan, amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock ‘n’ roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for punk and alternative rock.
