  • It's the cutaways between songs that stitch it all together with an emotional thread that charts its subject's struggles over the decades.

  • A lovely film that delves deep into the history of Bruce [Springsteen], particularly his young life.

  • A lovely companion piece to the latest album from the legendary musician.

    October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Throughout, Springsteen proves prophet and poet, a rhinestone cowboy still barreling down the highway of life. "Western Stars" is yet another exit on his epic journey.

    October 24, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • For Springsteen diehards - I'm raising my hand now - this is not the rich visual expansion of a very good album that its author hoped to make.

    October 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Now he's taken the reins as a movie director for a visual companion to his recently released, same-named album... that in its intimacy and honesty plays as if this is the way these songs were always meant to be enjoyed.

    Real Simple. Bruce, Patti and a string orchestra perform the new album in an old barn, with Bruce providing liner notes in between songs. Simple, and really good. Album is reminiscent of #Nebraska.
