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!
Visually and musically stunning! Different from any concert film I have ever seen. A must see.
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 .
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.
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!
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!!
Beautiful to hear and see
Fantastic songs played live with great commentary by Bruce.
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!
Beautifully shot, incredible cinematography
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. ❤❤
The orchestra, the barn, the cinematography...all add to experience we know as Bruce Springsteen. Loved it.
Great entertainment! Bruce has created some awesome new music and shares a side of himself with the audience.
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.
Beautifully filmed movie that really shows the genius of Bruce Springsteen. He really puts himself out there. You don't even have to be a Bruce fan to love it but it sure does help. Must see for all you Bruce fans out there!!
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.
Cinematography is fascinating ! Sound was great. String section added the right depth.
Beautifully done visually and lush musically. Love hearing Bruce's interpretations of the songs and his insights of himself
Beautiful scenery and gorgeous, lush music sounds great in theater.
What an EXPERIENCE!! I was totally emerged in this music and the story telling. Bruce is a living legend.
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.
