Cameron Crowe's 'Pearl Jam Twenty' Takes A Shocking 'Pro-Pearl Jam' Stance
This documentary harkens back to a day when musicians didn't have to wear meat dresses or shoot fireworks out of their bosom to matter. The trailer for Cameron Crowe'sPearl Jam documentary, Pearl Jam Twenty, doesn't leave much to discuss, save for the hilarious opening question posed by David Lynch to a befuddled Eddie Vedder. "How old were you and where were you when music started being a thing for you?" It's a valid question, but fortunately, the rest of the trailer seems to rely much more heavily on band interviews and archive footage than it does on Mr. Lynch's inquiring mind. Of course, the trailer makes the doc out to be something of a puff piece, which is no surprise given Cameron Crowe's love of music in general and working class rock specifically. That said, the band has maintained popularity and a degree of relevance for twenty years now (hence the name) so perhaps they deserve a little love.
