  • The approach conjures a compelling intimacy as the musician takes a trip back through his life, reflecting on his childhood, the very different personalities of his parents, and the effects his hard-drinking father had on his development.

  • An absorbing viewing experience, one that comes with the warm, accumulating feeling that while under Bruce Springsteen's tutelage, everything makes sense.

  • A master class in pacing, dynamics, modulation of volume and tone, and the film brings you right up onstage with Springsteen, giving you a more intimate view of his technique - understated, seemingly casual but absolutely controlled.

  • Like many of the all-time great concert films, Springsteen On Broadway is no substitute for being in the room, but it's power transcends any perceived limitations.

  • Watching him on-screen (two performances were filmed in July for the Netflix show) was still transformative.

  • Granted, those kind of accolades [EGOT] might sound like a lot to ask of one guy, standing alone on stage, armed only with a few musical instruments and an unabated passion for rock. But fortunately, he's that good.
