5.0 out of 5 stars Springsteen Videos, February 13, 2001
This review is from: Bruce Springsteen - The Complete Video Anthology, 1978-2000 (DVD)
The original Bruce Springsteen video anthology was release din 1989 and it contained all his video work up to that point. This reissue expands the original video to contain his work up until 2000. Mr. Springsteen's songs are vividly written, so they practically beg for video treatment. In fact, Sean Penn based the movie he made his directorial debut on, Indian Runner, around "Highway Patrolman" from Nebraska. Mr. Penn directs a video for the song that is made of clips from his movie. Other recent clips includes other soundtrack songs for "Streets Of Philadelphia" and "Dead Man Walking" directed by Jonathan Demme & Tim Robbins respectively. Mr. Demme also directs "Murder Incorporated" and the most recent video, "If I Should Fall Behind". On his 1999-2000 tour, the song was a shared vocal effort. Mr. Springsteen, Little Steven, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa and Clarence Clemons would all sing a verse with a group huddle around the mic at the end. The video perfectly captures this feel with the mic being the center of attention. A great video. The older videos still stand up especially the John Sayles trilogy of "Born In The U.S.A.", "I'm On Fire" and "Glory Days". "U.S.A." is particularly outstanding and ranks as one of the best videos ever made. "Tunnel Of Love" and "Brilliant Disguise" are strong and "One Step Up" has a rare "acting" performance from Mr. Springsteen. Two of the most powerful videos don't include Mr. Springsteen at all; "Atlantic City" and "The Ghost Of Tom Joad". They are both shot in black and white and the former captures the stark nature of the Nebraska album and the latter (with photos by his sister Pamela) captures the desperation of the Joad album. This anthology is an absolute must for any Springsteen fan and a great collection for even the casual fan.
