Atom User Reviews for Western Stars
Poignant, inspiring movie. Springsteen once again performs with a raw, open heart in a unique, intimate setting. Bravo to the Boss. This is a must see. His unique performance will leave you refreshed, and inspired.
Will see it again! Beautiful!
Not as big a Bruce fan as my hubs, who I bought the tickets for. That’s all changed now, excellent show! I’ll need to see it again. Loved loved loved the orchestra accompaniment and his narrative musings on life past, present and future .
Visually and musically stunning! Different from any concert film I have ever seen. A must see.
Absolutely perfect from beginning to end! Loved it! Phenomenal music performed in such a unique and intimate setting. I highly recommend!
Not what I expected but everything I wanted to see. Love this music, the musician and his collaborators that elevate his art.
Fully orchestral poetic vision of an introspective life.
Definitely a different view and musical style but still a storyteller and the voice is just as strong as early days.
Like spending an intimate evening with Bruce!
Fantastic songs played live with great commentary by Bruce.
Unlike other megastars of his caliber Bruce Springsteen always invites his fans into his mind and life. zooming I am on homes inperfections the Camera acknowledges prince is getting older and with each angle the camera finds a new wrinkle or the Strength of his marriage which is deep in its years. I just love Bruce, he is the man!
Was great to see the stories behind the songs. I'm glad Bruce was able to follow his dream by recording such an inspiration album that so records the time of life that he's experiencing now. ❤❤
Incredible as almost expected from the perfectionist Boss of all Media! Keep it coming Bro - send this to Netflix sooner than later so we can enjoy over and over again!
Beautifully shot, incredible cinematography
Beautiful to hear and see
Enjoyed this very much, saw a side of Bruce I haven’t seen and learned some things about his life and relationship with Patty. His stories between songs were perhaps my favorite parts and his new direction in music fits him very well. He’s not going on tour so I thought this was a great way to preview his new album. The barn setting was awesome!!
At 70, Bruce’s evolution and growth as an artist and musician to make a wonderful set of musical stories into something more visual and emotionally epic. His music has always been like a traveling companion and friend through last 35 years; now Bruce himself has joined as a friend with his open autobiography, Broadway Stage show and now this film. Much appreciated Bruce.
loved every minute of it.
An amazing film
Was beautiful. Will definitely see it again.
A must see if your a Bruce Springsteen fan..very inspiring and shows just how Bruce"s life is very relatable to mine. What a symphony of love and hope!
Brings his new album to life with this movie. His creativity is amazing and never ending. I will see this again and again.
Awesome! Simply awesome!
I will definitely listen to this album in it’s entirety in a new light
Absolutely beautiful..; cinema photography ..and the whole western stars album sounds even better live..and Rhinestone Cowboy!!!!
Long time Springsteen fan, lived the film. Cinematic, sound, emotion.
Seeing the album sung live in Bruce’s barn brings Western Stars to a whole new level. Amazing!
Truly a beautiful, insightful, original movie. Will go again.
Loved every minute!
Excellent! Sit up close if you get the chance!
As always, Springsteen reveals himself masterfully through his music and performance. Through his artful introspection we, his audience, learn about him, his family, but also ourselves. SIMPLY MAGIC!!
Beautiful stories and music, thanks Bruce for delivering such honest emotions and truth in these troubled times.
I’d rather see him with an acoustic guitar by himself, but he didn’t ask me. He doesn’t ever seem to stop growing or pushing himself creatively. I liked it!
It was excellent. We've been following Bruce sine 1975. We were not disappointed. We bought the CD back in June. Hey, Bruce, we live in So Utah. Come see us.
A must see for Springsteen fans and followers. Although if you don't want to see a reflective Bruce you'd better skip it. Non fans may either be bored or become fans.
deep and insightful. the music really resonated with me as did the back story that inspired the music.
Superb. Want to see it again and again.
It shows you what a deep thinker Bruce is.
Great add on to Springsteen on Broadway. Looking forward to next EStreet album.
An outstanding concert movie experience!
The orchestra, the barn, the cinematography...all add to experience we know as Bruce Springsteen. Loved it.
It’s a wonderful depiction of a fabulous album. I’m in love with this music and it truly is a love story to Patti and his children.
Let's you more into his psyche and what he reveres - and that's what Patti has brought to his life. Wonderful music and back story.
Beautifully shot, fabulous addition of orchestral strings, banjo, slide guitar, accordion. Every element that could make the songs great! Commentary and video added so much!!
I thought the songs sounded the same. There were no standouts. I normally truly enjoy the Bruce's story telling. However, it seemed like he was alluding to issues rather than making any great revelations. I felt like the entire film was something he did for himself to prove that he could write, edit, direct a film etcetera. I didn't even find it to be terribly creative. I actually fell asleep twice.
A gorgeous tone poem that both deepens and personalizes the audio recording, creating a satisfying emotional arc that isn’t as apparent in the collection of 13 fully-orchestrated country-tinged songs.
Western Stars goes far deeper than the usual performance document, to sensitively explore what he sees as the state of his, and our, lives. It’s a ruminative, almost elegiac look at Springsteen’s life and career, filled with moments of uncommon beauty that makes it of a piece with this latest, most introspective phase of his career.
Don’t go into Western Stars expecting to see The Boss. That guy is on a break. What we get instead is Bruce Springsteen, a human being who seems a lot less sure of himself than The Boss ever did. Springsteen’s book gave us some details, but Western Stars looks straight into his soul.
