Brief Synopsis – A look behind the scenes of Bruce Springsteen’s new album that summarizes his career and life over more than 50 years.
My Take on it – This is a documentary that I came across by accident and was intrigued by the premise of it all.
I have been a fan of Bruce Springsteen’s music for over 40 years and the idea to record the song writing process is a great and unique concept that is done so well here.
The film is able to give us a very intimate look at Springsteen and his band as they make another album that somewhat summarizes the band’s career over the past 50 years.
The songs that are presented are all quite personal and deal with some very poignant events in life and I think that some of these tracks are among the very best he has recorded over his storied career.
Having the ability to see his band at both work and play is great allows us to get a more personal look at the whole process as the film progresses.
The intimate relationship that he has with the E Street Band is great to see because it helps explain why they have been able to stay together and work together for so many years.
Bottom Line – Amazing documentary that is able to combine the music of this great musician along with a more in depth look into the sing writing process. The music is among some of his very best work and we get to see how personal some of the tracks are which adds even more emotion to the way that things are presented. Being able to see his band at work and at play helps give a more personal touch to things as the documentary progresses. We get to see the intimate relationship that Bruce has with his band which helps explain why they have stayed together for so long. Recommended!
