Movie Info

DANNY SAYS is a documentary on the life and times of Danny Fields. Since 1966, Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and "culture" of the late 20th century: working for the Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, the MC5 and the Ramones. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to the Warhol Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to "punk pioneer" and beyond. Danny's taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, has turned out to have been prescient. DANNY SAYS is a story of marginal turning mainstream, avant garde turning prophetic, as Fields looks to the next generation.

A must for fans of noise and nostalgia.

I certainly hope Danny Fields has a memoir, or a journal, waiting for publication.

A candid yet unrevealing documentary ...

Top Critic

If Mr. Fields's contributions to pop music deserve more fame, the movie plays like an overcorrection, a spirited but repetitive testament to one man's excellent taste.

Why, at the end of Brendan Toller's intermittently fascinating but exclusively surface-level documentary, do we still have no idea who Danny Fields really is?

September 29, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Music buffs will want to see all these now-famous folks in their obscure early days. But they'll come away admiring a man they've barely heard of before.
