Stevie Van Zandt: Disciple (2024) Tribeca 2024

HBO documentary about Steve Van Zandt a partner in crime to Bruce Springsteen, a solo artist, actor, composer, producer and many other things.

This film is everything you ever wanted to know about Van Zandt and then some. Full of great muic and greater stories it's a film that will make you fall in love with Van Zandt and his body of work. Odds are even if you Van Zandt this film is going to tell you something new.

The problem with it is that it is wildly over long. Yes, there is a lot to tell, but making this film two and a half hours long works against it (I ran into several people who walked out of one of the public screenings because it was simply too much). This should have been shorter or what would have been better several hour long episodes. On the other hand since the film is premiering this weekend on HBO and MAX you can watch this in pieces.

Over length or no- this is a lot of fun and is recommended.
