“Pure gold.”—Dennis Harvey, Variety
Since 1966, Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and culture of the late twentieth century working for the Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins, and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, MC5, and the Ramones. This engaging documentary follows Fields from Harvard Law School dropout, to Andy Warhol’s Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, and finally the pioneer of punk.
Fields’s taste and opinion once deemed defiant and radical, were always at the forefront of culture. His is a story of the marginal becoming mainstream, the avant garde turning prophetic, and the need to constantly court the next new cultural shift. 2015, U.S., DCP, 104 minutes.
