What to Know

Critics Consensus

Cameron Crowe's fawning documentary is a true boon for Pearl Jam fans, but the band's insistent resistance to fame comes off hollow.

Brian Tallerico HollywoodChicago.com Very few music documentaries in the history of the form have more successfully conveyed the inner workings and outer artistic expression of a band than Cameron Crowe's brilliant Pearl Jam Twenty. Rated: 5.0/5.0 Sep 29, 2011 Full Review Dana Stevens Slate Crowe has assembled some top-drawer ephemera -- old show posters, home movies, and candid backstage footage -- but he overestimates his audience's patience for present-day talking-head interviews. Sep 23, 2011 Full Review Guy Dixon Globe and Mail With its intimacy and (this can't be emphasized enough) fantastic sound, Pearl Jam Twenty is like two hours spent rediscovering the band through excellent headphones. Rated: 3/4 Sep 23, 2011 Full Review Russell Cook CineVue It is told in big themes and bold colours with blistering sound and is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely seen and never-before seen footage spanning the band's career. Rated: 4/5 Dec 1, 2018 Full Review John Gholson Movies.com Pearl Jam Twenty may not create new fans, but for existing fans, it's an exceptional musical experience. Feb 3, 2012 Full Review Eric Melin Scene-Stealers.com It is a huge missed opportunity on Crowe's part. In his attempt to show the best traits of a band he is obviously very enamored with, he's wound up with a pretty lackluster film. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 27, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews
