For people who are Minutemen fans and movie buffs, We Jam Econo is kind of a mixed blessing.
This is an insider's tour -- the uninitiated are, frankly, not likely to be converted.
The spiky documentary in their honor keeps alive the echoes of their slapdash, Smithsonian-worthy sound.
It's refreshing to see a doc in which the biggest boldfaced name is Flea, who gushes over Watt and Boon's reluctance to tune their instruments.
The filmmakers have assembled a remarkable cast of voices, including Henry Rollins, Flea, Ian MacKaye, Thurston Moore, Richard Hell, J Mascis, critic Richard Meltzer, and Watt's mom.
The Minutemen were influential then and now, and We Jam Econo is a valentine to the band and D. Boon's memory. They're immortal now, and that's as it should be.
One of the toughest forms of nostalgia is a yearning for times that were anything but peaceful.
One of last year's finest documentaries, and one of the greatest rock movies I've ever seen.
a spirited tribute
We Jam Econo is a must for the trio's fans, although non-aficionados of the group's cacophonous music may be puzzled by all the on-screen accolades showered on the band.
Largely conventional documentary lovingly portrays the brief life of '80s California band The Minutemen.
This footage nicely captures the punky energy of the band's early performances, but the homemade approach doesn't work so well in contemporary footage with band member Mike Watt.
Really good documentary, even if you are not into their music. A lot of great interviews with interesting people.
Sometimes sad, but always entertaining look at one of the founding fathers of alternative rock/ punk music. My favorite parts are watching the muscular, body-builder-like George Hurley wail on the drums with this unicorn hair-do.
