Springsteen & I

4

Music doc on The Boss

This compilation of tributes from Bruce followers trounces Shane Meadows’ Made Of Stone in the fan- film stakes. 

Invited to submit films about what Springsteen means to them, admirers probe his ties to an often blue-collar fanbase. Some electric gig footage justifies the love; ‘Thunder road’ scorches. 

 

You pity the kids of the more Boss-obsessed but there’s pomposity-pricking humour and uplift here, too. 

 

The firsthand concert stories, luckiest busker ever and an OAP who thinks Springsteen is “hot” paint a potent picture of Bruce’s hearty populism.
