Critic Reviews for We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen
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.
Audience Reviews for We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen
Really good documentary, even if you are not into their music. A lot of great interviews with interesting people.
I think I'd make a pretty good D. Boon for a halloween Minuteman tribute band. As soon as find someone who can grow a haircut like George Hurley, I'll get to work.
I never knew of The Minutemen sound before the viewing, now I can't forget it. The film delivers their essence.
