United States 2016, 108 min, English, Hebrew subtitles

Suddenly, at 70, Iggy Pop turns out to be not just a trailblazing musician but also a really funny guy—all thanks to Jim Jarmusch, whose chemistry with his subject has created one of the most entertaining rock movies of recent years. Jarmusch, silent behind the camera, elicits fantastic personal confessions from Jim (Iggy) Osterberg, and charts the rise, fall, and historic resurgence of The Stooges, one of the most influential rock groups of all time. This movie has it all: Tales from behind the scenes, anecdotes about legendaries of American music, drugs, excess, and lots of music and rare bootleg fan footage, underscored by commentary from the drummer who became a singer because he was “sick of looking at guitarists’ butts.”
