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

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.

I attended a showing of Springsteen and i basically, an ode to Bruce told through fan-submitted videos, concert-footage and interviews. The fan stories of first concerts, chance meetings and tales of the way Bruces music has affected their lives.
Funny, sweet, touching...those are my 3 words. I feel compelled to tell you all not to leave when the credits begin to roll or you'll miss the last 40 minutes. Even the casual Springsteen fan needs to see this.

This was a great movie. It was fun seeing all of the old footage and hearing the fans explain why Bruce is so important to them. If you are a Bruce fan, you will enjoy this.

To the casual music fan, "Springsteen & I", at first glance, may seem like an on screen opportunity for Bruce Springsteen diehards to voice their love for all things, "The Boss". At times, that is exactly what the film is. Fans were asked to share their own videos & provide comments, stating what Springsteen's music means to them. Occasionaly, the film borders on sappy, as one woman relates her sexual awakening, watching Bruce's "perfect body", dance to, "jungleland". One man even breaks down in tears, as he describes the elements of Springsteen's songs that draw him in.
These examples aside, "Springsteen & I", provides a much bigger message: The effect music has on people's lives. The majority of tales told here are form everyday people from small towns, who find comfort, joy & strength from the message in Bruce's songs. Many of the stories are simply uplifting.
Music fans in general appreciate the film. The Boss' fans will love it.
