Pearl Jam Twenty by Cameron Crowe was released yesterday in Paris. After “U2″ in 3D and, in celebration of his 25 la Géode, the giant ball located at Parc de La Villette started at 8pm for a world exclusive preview showing of Pearl Jam Twenty. This was without any doubt the perfect place to see this film.
It is the largest hemispherical screen of Europe, having dazzled more than 17 million spectators by immersing them in the heart of the images. Today, through a system of digital projection unique in the world, the la Géode giant opens to new images, new uses, and always for exceptional emotions. Tickets were sold at a price of 14 euros. The Parisian evening displayed a course full for ages.
The documentary celebrates Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary and combines new interviews and performances with archive footage. Of the most memorable moments is the interview between the band leader Eddie Vedder and filmmaker David Lynch. The film will be shown in a couple of exclusive French cinemas before being released on DVD in late October.
The documentary has been released on September 20 in Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Croatia, Finland, Ireland, Japan, Portugal, Singapore, UK and USA. A fan club member says in a review published on IMDB.com: “This film is as good as it gets for Pearl Jam fans! I saw this at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival ) 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.” James Marsh, a music reviewer, after seeing the film in TIFF confessed: “If Pearl Jam were never to play another note Crowe’s film would serve as the perfect eulogy to a band that seems more important than ever.
More than anything, however, PEARL JAM TWENTY will send you racing home to crank “Ten” up as loud as it will go and thrash the night away, wishing you were young again and still had hair down to your nipples.” For those who want more of this Seattle band, the soundtrack of the film and the “Twenty The Book”, with more interviews, will be out the same day as the film.
There is also a tour in process that started on September 3 in East Troy and covering Canada, Brazil, Mexico and many more. The DVD is announced to hit stores on October 25.
