Ke$ha: Warrior

Ke$ha might be one of the easiest pop stars to mock in history, but with Warrior's surprising detours, Iggy Pop cameos, and Wayne Coyne collaborations prove, Ke$ha is a very smart girl who knows exactly when and how to deviate from her image, resulting in some remarkably good pop music (no, really).

New York Doll (2006)

What started out as a small documentary on the uncomfortable but engaging New York Dolls bassist turned into a full-scale revelation, tracking his improbable journey of rock 'n' roll redemption.

Iggy Pop: A Million in Prizes: The Iggy Pop Anthology

Iggy Pop: Iggy Pop! Live San Fran 1981 [DVD]

A packed and smoky club... San Francisco... 25 November 1981... The nexus between the fading remnants of punk and disco and the germination of new wave... What better ambassador to represent the changing times than the remarkable James Osterberg?"

Coffee and Cigarettes (2004)

On its own terms, Coffee and Cigarettes is an effective addiction movie, self-indulgent but also familiar and low-key.
