Springsteen and I rocked!!!.
I'm a huge fan or so I thought I was until I met these fans, there stories were from the heart. The way Bruce affected their lives made me want more and now I will locate all the Bruce music I don't own and add it to my daily playlist.
I want to be them and live my life on the hopes and dreams Bruce has shown us all.
I cried at least half a dozen times, danced in my chair and clapped as if I was at a live concert.
I cried most when dear sweet Clarence was on stage, I miss him, RIP...
Great job, can't wait for it on DVD so I can watch it many times over again. My 30 year old daughter is also a fan and now lives in Australia can't wait to send her the DVD.

Saw "Springsteen and I" last night. Defies Definition. Never went to a movie where the entire audience clapped, wept, laughed, cheered and sighed. Truly a community. Truly GOD is to be praised above all else for creating this man as one of his countless blessings to bestow upon us. Bruce, may you sing with the angels forever when it is your time. Get the DVD when it comes out. A MUST!

The movie wasn't exactly what I expected. I kind of thought it would be a chronological story of his career, but it was good. Anything that Bruce does or is in is terrific. I loved the piece after the movie - the footage from his 2012 London show. Bruce Springsteen puts on the best concert out of any band I have ever seen. There isn't an opening band and he has so much energy. Bruce connects with his fans and he is down to earth. He doesn't try to be something he isn't. You can see the deep friendship he has with his band members and you feel proud to be from small town USA after hearing his songs.

My beginning with BRUCE was early 1980. Got Tickets for the show on my best friend (JUDI) birthday. We headed to the Spectrum (Philly), fell in love and have been to every concert on the east coast USA since.
At one of the concerts I remarked to Judi, 'there are a lot of guys here'. This movie/concert helped me understand the draw. Bruce is telling their life story. I am so happy to have that perspective, it changes everything for me. I will be buying more BRUCE listening with different ears.
As I listened to U2 after 9/11.
I love BRUCE, he and E Street Band have sooo much fun and we become part of the fun.
We go to BRUCE to have fun with him, sing with him, laugh, dance, we get it all

A Fabulous movie. I went in on a day that I thought my world was coming to an end. My husband who had beat cancer once was told it was back. He was looking to me for strength that I just didn't feel I had. But, typical for a Bruce event, I came out rejuvenated. Ready to fight and conquer this thing. I don't know how many times Bruce and his music has pulled me back from the brink, but through this movie, he did it again! So good to see other people that have the same experience and admiration for this man. It is a well done, fun and uplifting movie that even someone that has not had the chance to attend the "church of Bruce Springsteen" can enjoy.
