Review: Director Cameron Crowe used to be a rock journalist, so he is perfect for a project like this. A documentary about the band Pearl Jam that marks their 20th anniversary in 2011.
Personally I’m a huge fan of Pearl Jam and I’ve seen them live. I think their the best live band I’ve ever seen. This documentary is interesting for me, I always like documentaries like this.
“Pearl Jam Twenty” is a lookback on the twenty years of the band. And it’s not a story without any critique. Lead singer Eddie Vedder and his fellow band members look back on the highlights, but also the low points. The success of album Ten, but also the clash they had with Nirvana. And also the death of Andy Wood. If he hadn’t died, Pearl Jam wouldn’t even exist.
All in all “Pearl Jam Twenty” is a great look at all the memorable moments of the band. Especially a great documentary for fans of the band. If you don’t feel anything for Pearl Jam, this documentary is probably not going to appeal to you.
Rating: 3,5/ 5
