Bruce Springsteen added director to his list of credits with the film WESTERN STARS which premiered last fall at TIFF. Part concert film, part documentary WESTERN STARS is our next Rialto Recommends. Springsteen performs his critically acclaimed latest album in the hay loft of a barn with an orchestra and muses on life, rock, and the American dream, in this intimate and personal concert film co-directed by Thom Zimny and Springsteen himself. The Wrap said "It's a ruminative, almost elegiac look at Springsteen's life and career, filled with moments of uncommon beauty that makes it of a piece with this latest, most introspective phase of his career." While the Los Angeles Times said "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." WESTERN STARS is streaming on HBOMax, HBONow, and DirectTV HERE.
