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.

Excellent for Bruce fans and music buffs alike. Told from the perspective of his fans, all footage is from them mixed in with concert footage. Tells great stories of what Bruce means to his fans around the world. Touching and funny, great 6 song concert from Hyde park post movie with an epilogue. Make sure you stay through the end.

Great tribute to an awesome performer and his band! Brought me back to a time in my life that was amazing - Forgot about how much his music influenced my youth - best part is I got to see it with my 18 year old son!
