Movie Info

This rock documentary by director Doug Pray focuses on the explosion of grunge music that took place in the Pacific Northwest during the early 1990s. While the film features the most popular bands of the movement -- namely Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden -- it also presents lesser-known acts such as the Melvins, Mudhoney and Seaweed. Incorporating concert clips, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, the movie paints a dynamic picture of this highly influential scene.

    I'm on a rock doc kick at the moment and it's been about a decade since I watched this film. We used to watch this film all the time in high school. shit. I've dated myself. Anyways, if you like music and you remember the 90s, this movie is a must see. Is grunge 'retro' yet? I think it might be time to get the band back together... Up next. Reality Bites!

    Required viewing for fans of grunge music, this is just an extremely well-made documentary. Filled with candid, insightful interviews and incredible music, it's an evocative portrait of a wild phase in rock music. As someone who loves grunge, I was captivated by this film.
