Movie reviews

PEARL JAM TWENTY chronicles the years leading up to the band’s formation, the chaos that ensued soon-after their rise to mega stardom, their step back from centre stage, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them, giving way to a work culture that would sustain them.

Told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, the film is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely seen and never-before seen footage spanning the band’s career. PEARL JAM TWENTY is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.
