Quotes

Bruce Springsteen: Lies. They will devour everything you have and everything you will ever have; faith, hope, trust... all those things that are hard to come by. That's what grows your garden of love. Lies will try to make a fool out of all those things. But without them, all you have is stones.

Gorgeous orchestral score makes this worth seeing
27 October 2019 | by GoldeninlaSee all my reviews

The sound of this film is what will stick with you. We saw it in a Dolby theatre and with the really accomplished orchestra backing Bruce and Patti, the music is grand, symphonic and just spectacular. Most of the talking is actually done after the main film, which was followed by a mini-documentary about the making of it. If you really want to know about Bruce, then you have to watch the recording of his Broadway show. This film is more like small thematic clips surrounding the songs, which were all recorded live in his barn and are nothing like his rock 'n roll. It's thoughtful, introspective, and almost reverential. I'm not quite sure it works as a film, but it sure is nice to listen to.
