SPRING­STEEN & I (M)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES -

YOU can safely file this un­ortho­dox rock doco un­der home- made, heart­felt and highly en­joy­able. Though very much a pos­i­tive cel­e­bra­tion of all things Bruce Spring­steen, none of the usual tropes of typ­i­cal filmed trib­utes are in ev­i­dence. Last year, a world­wide in­vi­ta­tion was is­sued to devotees of The Boss to shoot their own movies about their idol. Phones, tablets and web cams were im­me­di­ately ac­ti­vated, and the re­sponse was a del­uge of footage. Di­rec­tor Bail­lie Walsh and his small team of edi­tors have done an in­cred­i­ble job both fil­ter­ing and col­lat­ing th­ese raw frames of fan­dom into a co­he­sive, per­sua­sive whole. In­cludes 30 bonus min­utes of ex­clu­sive con­cert footage at the end.
