Having just watched PJ20 this past weekend (it’s available On Demand for $6.99), I’m happy to say it crushes every expectation and more. The documentary captures the Seattle scene from a likeable insider’s view and spends ample time on the precursor bands – particularly Mother Love Bone. I never had a moment’s doubt, but the documentary is really quite the ride. What I found most interesting is that Pearl Jam as a complete unit paid almost no dues. They started playing legit big rooms literally just days after Eddie joined the band, and exploded with Lollapalooza and MTV Unplugged hardly a year after forming. Needless to say, what makes the movie so much fun is the music. Its not all hits, which means you’ll quickly remember just how hard this band can rock when they feel like it.
