As a Springsteen devotee of 40 years, this was a great tribute to the best performer of my lifetime. Fun interviews with fans, and the live footage from England 2012 at the end is worth the price of admission, especially the two songs with Paul McCartney! I would have enjoyed seeing some celebrity fan interviews, and it could have been much longer. I was moved to tears several times, moved once again by this amazing man!

Great documentary that is about more than Bruce Springsteen's fans. It's a love letter to all the fans of any great artist, and about how both fan and artist form a pact that goes both ways. The fans were well chosen -- all different, but all sharing a huge love for this great artist. Clips, especially the older ones of young, feral Bruce, were amazing. Bruce is right to describe himself as a shaman, and the fans come to his altar to love, to learn, to be cleansed, and to have the best time ever. Thank you, Bruce!

For most of us, true Springsteen aficionado', this was a fantastic close up, behind the scene footage that most fans are unable to be privy to
Made me laugh, contemplate memories, life and even teared up during most of the interviewees who were selected to be showcased.
Made you just cheer each of the selected individuals.
Movie goers applauded during many of Bruce's concert footage and ending of movie in appreciation of the movie.
The memories that each person shared on how they have been changed by the Boss himself, resonated a feeling in most of us in the theater we could all relate to with our own past concert memories.
Truly, Bruce has touched many of us in a way that could only be explained as just being human beings struggle, successes and happiness of "growing up"
My 3 words on how Springsteen means to me:
Life Long Friend
Corazon de Todos (Everyones Heart)
Heart and Soul

Two hours of pure joy and entertainment. Even if you are not a Bruce fan to the degree the folks in the videos are, you cannot help but be entertained and possibly swayed to become one. The combination of the interviews and the clips from concerts to the end where Bruce meets a few of his most ardent fans is just downright pure fun. The added footage of the Hyde Park concert with Sir Paul McCartney was an unexpected perk. I cannot recommend a better way to spend two hours than watching Bruce become the performer he is today and the fans who love him. Go!!!!

A must for any Springsteen fan. Almost captures (because really, unless you've experienced Bruce live its hard to understand) the essence of the wonder and power of Bruce. And if you aren't a fan or don't know his music its worth your time as well.
