Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: While the movie may not have the insight of D. A. Pennebaker's "Don't Look Back" or even Phil Joanou's U2 travelogue, "Rattle and Hum," Pearl Jam devotees will not go home musically unnourished.
Fresh: By the time "Pearl Jam Twenty" is over we can't help but be impressed by the kind of personal and professional integrity that has kept the band honest and allowed them to endure and prosper.
Rotten: Perhaps Pearl Jam's arc too closely resembles Crowe's own, and he can't see what's so uniquely poignant about dimmed but enduring stars.
Fresh: Any enterprise like this is inherently self-congratulatory, but the film is best considered from Crowe's perspective: that of a fan.
Great movie about a great band, I've been the biggest fan since the beginning, and the previous bands the guys had and the whole Seattle sound...of which pearl jam is my favorite and the best...! Can't wait to get my 3 disc fan club store bought extended edition...only a couple weeks left, I think I can make it...! Thanks guys, keep the tunes comin...!!! Your music gets me through...!
A Early Fan Must
I learned a lot about their rise to becoming a cult favorite. Cobain makes an appearance. Having grown up when they got started and from Seattle, the who,e sell out delimma is interesting and it's easy to see why they are still fascinating. They didn't sell out and made it clear their music comes from an honest place. Knowing Cobain couldnt handle the control of a label and Ticketmaster controversy makes it truly a great flick if you are true grunge/alternative fan. Their trust in the followers and crazy energy are infectious and beautiful.
Love this film
I have been waiting for years for someone to make this movie. Thank you Cameron Crowe!!!!
