Trivia

When asked how he felt about the film, bassist Jeff Ament claimed he felt uncomfortable with how often he used profanity on camera. See more »

Goofs

Eddie Vedder dedicates a performance to Kurt Cobain and the date is given as "April 8th, 1994 - The Day Kurt Died". This may appear as a goof, as in some places it is mentioned that Kurt Cobain died on April 5th 1994.

Both dates are relevant: April 8th is the day Kurt Cobain was discovered dead. The coroner established that he had died on April 5th. See more »

Quotes

Mike McCready: [about Andrew Wood, singer of Mother Love Bone] He would do something like go to The Central Tavern when there was 25 people there. He play it like it was The Colosseum. "To all you people in the back!" And there's like... the guy at the door.

User Reviews

 
Perfect film for Pearl Jam fans!
12 September 2011 | by kevin_parksSee all my reviews

I'm a fan club member... and just a huge huge fan of the band. Been a fan for a very long time.

This film is as good as it gets for Pearl Jam fans! I saw this at TIFF. And I can honestly say I was never disappointed about any part of this film.

It captures the essence of the band perfectly with a very good and subtle amount of humour.

I'm going to see this again in theatres.. and oh MY I cannot wait until this is released on Blu-Ray / DVD.

A Must see for any Pearl Jam fan... and any fan of rock music for that matter.

Cheers
