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!

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!

This is an amazing piece of film that has 3 separate parts. The first is a love letter to Bruce from his fans. We laughed, cheered, cried, sang, danced (in our seats) and rejoiced with so many of them and their stories of the impact he's had on their lives, families, self worth and careers. The second part is a reminder of why his fans love him... footage from 2012 Hyde Park London show that ends with Bruce and Paul McCartney singing together. The last part is a handful of his fans talking about how they felt when they learned their footage was being used in the documentary..... and footage of them bonding with Bruce backstage in Copenhagen. He 'knew' them all from having seen the documentary footage. A must see for even the casual Bruce fan!

I saw it last nite and liked it a lot. My husband is a "fan by marriage" and he liked it a lot. The Epilogue" was stupendous. My favorite part (of about 3) was when he began "Born to Run" circa 1975, I thought to myself (along with probably everyone else in the theater) wouldn't it be too super if they did a montage of him singing that song thru the ages - same key, same tone, same phrasing, same richness of sound - and THEY DID. Can't wait for the DVD.

I smiled and sang along, at times I felt like I was at a concert. Was wonderful to hear what others had to say about Bruce Springsteen. I would definitely see it again and want it to come out on BluRay.
