Stooge

Stooge follows middle aged Englishman Robert Pargiter, the self-proclaimed world’s number-one Iggy Pop fan, on a three-year journey that moves from the Hollywood Hills to the British countryside, from London to Miami, and many points in between.

Shot in the years preceding Robert’s fiftieth birthday, Stooge is a documentary about fandom, passionate devotion, masculinity, obsession, friendship, and life itself – in short, a film about the power of rock and roll, and its potential to liberate the listener. But Stooge is not merely a film about rock and roll, it is also a film that explores what drives one man to dedicate his life so obsessively to a single purpose.

Award winning director Madeleine Farley crafts a compelling documentary, a portrait of a man that shifts between the funny and the poignant, the exciting and the heart-breaking.

“For a film so steeped in American punk culture, it manages to still remain quintessentially British, and rightly so. The enigmatic personality it carries is undeniable, and with subtly great comedic editing, the film flies by. Stooge is essential viewing not just for fans of Iggy Pop, but for fans of soul, passion, and above all, friendship.” – The 730 Review
