The Cameron Crow documentary captures the intensity of Pearl Jam in the early years, along with the explosion of the Seattle scene. Crows creation is fluid and the editing is creative and visually stunning. The film clearly depicts Pearl Jam's relationship and contribution to other bands from the early '90s. The viewer gets to know all of the original members of the band, their personalities and artistic contributions. The film does an excellent job of explaining how and why Pearl Jam survived for 20 years. As a life long Pearl Jam fan, I have to admit there were a few events in the film that I did not know about. The film is full of different emotions and I laughed more then I thought I would. Overall, a must see for anyone who grew up listening to Pearl Jam.

I saw this doc at the movie theatre in a 1 night only showing. There wasnt 1 empty seat.Judging by the audiences reactions, everybody thoroughly loved this film.I have always liked the band, although not a die hard fan. This documentary is extremely well done , no surprise given the fact that Cameron Crowe is behind it. Nice mix of interesting dialoge and live footage. Also , quite a bit of humour. A fitting tribute in the 15-20 mins spent on Mother Love Bone and Andrew Wood . As well as Temple of the dog and comments from Chris Cornell. Just an excellent 2 hrs spent. Any moderate fan will really love this doc. I am looking forward to watching on dvd and hopefully seeing some extras too.

I will begin by saying I am a devoted PJ fan, following them almost since the beginning. The Nw music scene has always been highly charged and eclectic, with a variety of sounds that run the gamut. Raining 9 months out of the year leaves folks up here with a gloomy kind of feeling. But bands like Mudhoney,Soundgarden,The Melvin's,Pearl Jam, AIC & Nirvana,as well as Mother Love Bone paved the way for countless bands to follow.They were neither Emo,nor pop or "conventional" bands...They played loud, fast,and with such incredible feeling that they were really hard to define. They were confessionals,love songs, songs filled with angst, rage,social awkwardness and alienation. And their history is deeply inter-twined with Pearl Jam's. So-and-so was in a band with so-and-so, who knew so-and-so, who was flat-mates with so-and-so.We are treated to an evolutionary tale~ this epic documentary chronicles the scene culminating with the formation of the Band, the evolution of the band and it's members(especially Ed), their rise to stardom (and the interim),and how they have went on to become one of the greatest bands the world has ever known,giving the viewer insight as to why they have a core of devoted fans that follow them with almost Deadhead-like religious fanaticism. Cameron Crowe has a lengthy history with the band, having directed them in "Singles", also being close friends with them. This Documentary is a must-have for fans, music buffs and historians, who will appreciate a behind-the-scenes look into a complex, yet down-to-Earth bunch of guys whose love of music and their fans has transcended time, and who are passionate about not only these things, but social and environmental causes as well. 2 decades is a long time in the music industry, but they have found their niche, and continue to wow and amaze, while seemingly to never miss a beat.Highly recommended,highly informative,and highly appreciated.

Cameron Crowe has made a superb film documentary of Pearl Jam's history including lots of excellent interviews from people who were there and showing some amazing live performances from around the world. The film begins with the story of Mother Love Bone and the death of Andy Wood which then leads to the beginnings of Mookie Blaylock and their search for a voice that would transform them into Pearl Jam. The interviews include great stories from Chris Cornell and each of the members of Pearl Jam who give honest and detailed information about the whole grunge scene and the meteoric rise to fame that threatened to end the band. The reasons behind Pearl Jam's longevity are explained and even the down times in their career are looked upon as blessings for the band. The soundtrack is full of rare demos and amazing live performances that show what a great live band Pearl Jam have always been. Pearl Jam Twenty is both informative and entertaining and represents one of the best music documentaries of all time.

I started out not liking them when I was a teenager not because of age, but it seemed over little time.. there would be a Pearl Jam song pop up on the radio every time I took a 10 minute drive somewhere and usually always the same few songs. Well around here in these boondocks it hasn't changed too much at all and neither have the songs. I did, however, fall in love with the Yield album and found their self titled a welcome change. Other than that I blocked a lot of the other material out for the longest time. This doc really helped me understand the pressures of the popular music scene and I could relate to this band a great deal. Very entertaining and well edited. I find myself listening to them a lot more often.

The extra footage in the delux edition is well worth the buy. There are clips of members of the band creating songs as well as live footage and in depth interviews with all members of the band.
