About the Movie
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, MC5 and the Ramones. Danny Says follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to Andy Warhol’s 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Fresh: Rock gadfly Danny Fields' reminiscences of the 1960s and 1970s are pure gold in Brendan Toller's documentary.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: While some of the stories are far from new, it's a treat to hear them in Fields's wry voice.
a must for rock fans
Danny was there for everything and his stories are incredible and oh so funny. If you care about bands like Ramones, Velvets, Alice Cooper, Modern Lovers, Stooges - it's a must see.
Visionary director Brendan Toller's master work! Great!
This is a joyous movie. As documentaries go, it's one of the best. Danny is brilliant and funny and wise.
