(2011) dir Cameron Crowe w/Pearl Jam, Chris Cornell, Neil Young [120 min]

This band-sanctioned documentary by famed director Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous) is, first-and-foremost, a love letter to Pearl Jam, but it doesn’t shy too far away from the issues that plague most bands – artistic differences, dissent, substance abuse, erratic behavior – and those that are unique to Pearl Jam – tragic death, a mercurial lead singer, their status as “second-best” grunge band, their failed stand against Ticketmaster, and more. Of course, there is also a wealth of live footage from all stages of the band’s twenty year history weaved throughout – including a lot from a triumphant anniversary concert and a little from an infamous, MTV-sponsored party for Crowe’s film Singles featuring perhaps their most embarrassing performance ever. Ultimately, this is a story about a band that makes sometimes-dark, sometimes-joyous but always-uncompromising songs whose only devotions are to their fans and the integrity of the music they produce.
