FYI: Jim Jarmusch’s new documentary Gimme Danger–his “love letter” to punk icons Iggy Pop and The Stooges–is steaming free right now on Amazon Prime. If you have Amazon Prime, you can start streaming the film here. If you don’t, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial, watch the doc, and then decide whether to remain a subscriber or not. It’s your call. (Note: they also offer a similar deal for audiobooks from Audible.)

Having the watched the film just last weekend, I’ll say this: Gimme Danger is worth the watch. But it just scratches the surface of what Pop and the Stooges were all about. To go deeper, I’d recommend picking up a copy of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk (now released in a 20th anniversary edition), which gives you a more complete and raw account of the rise and fall of this influential band.

    this is very disappointing, ‘Open Culture’ should never be restricted to a 30-day free trial.

    Hey Alberto, the idea is: Open Culture finds stuff available for free on the internet, you are under no obligation to take advantage of it. And, it’s 2:16 A.M., maybe you’re just tired?
