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 .

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!

Definitely a different view and musical style but still a storyteller and the voice is just as strong as early days.

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!!

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!!

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!!

Truly remarkable. Bruce has created a body of work that studies human nature and character that can only be developed after a lifetime like his. This is a truly a contemplative movie that shows his creative process as well as exquisite renditions of incredible music.

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!

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.
