Movie Blinded by the Light Introduction:
Watch full Blinded by the Light 2019 watch online, An important movie with an important message. Yeah, I’m one of those dads with Springsteen in my music collection; but Bruce Springsteen’s message is as poignant today as it was when it was first recorded or in the late eighties when this film takes place.
Gurinder Chadha seamless melding of times, cultures, and situations emphasizes the importance that music has in growing up and finding oneself.
The obstacles faced by the lead, Javed, are the same as the obstacles faced by any youth growing up in circumstances outside the financial elite, throw in the onslaught of teenage hormones and you get the ‘powder keg, ready to explode.’ Film-wise I loved the way Bruce’s music was presented. Personally, I have a severe audiological learning disability (I have difficulty translating sounds into words as vice a versa).
Bruce Springsteen’s passion and emotion were always crystal clear to me but to understand what he was so empathic about I needed the liner notes.
Watch The Lighthouse Online Overview:
I am a huge Springsteen fan. Have been since I discovered what his music was truly about over 30 years ago when I too was in high school. THAT said, this movie is horrible. It shoved Springsteen down the audience’s throat (words I thought I’d never say) and beats you over the head with forced dialogue referencing Springsteen in every other sentence to the point of non authentic, shallow meaningless goop.
I almost walked out. Words I never thought I’d say for anything Bruce related. I cringed- physically and very literally most of the time. How could Bruce be ok with this film? Everything in Bruce’s music has depth. Truth. It’s organic. Authentic. This forced montage of a film is shallow and predictable. The dialogue felt fabricated by a first year college script writing class. The acting is C+ in its finer moments.
And clearly the director and producer couldn’t decide: is it a musical? A John Hughes wannabe salute? A political statement with bad casting and too few background artists to be believable? Perhaps a tried and true tale of a rebellious son? If it was trying to be all of the above, the piecemeal story line was simply missing a narrator to state every now and again: “And then, one time at band camp…” The story is about an immigrant family whose teenage son becomes hooked on Springsteen music.
This. Describes. Half of. ALL. Springsteen. Fans. (The other half are female.) However. Most Springsteen fans wouldn’t dare try and upstage the Boss with a desperate cry for attention with bad writing and forced references to the Boss JUST to get on the big screen. So the guy is a fan. So Springsteen influenced his life. From a true fan’s perspective, it doesn’t give him the right to make a mess of a film by riding on the coattails of Springsteen songs JUST to make a film. Seriously, this movie was about a young man coming of age… we’ve seen it before.
Nothing new here to see. But he clearly used the Boss to get the movie made. Springsteen deserves better. The crazed fan should have stuck with the book and left well enough alone. Springsteen fans: your eyes cannot unsee it. Save these two hours of your life. I was ready to love and cheer this movie. / Reviewing Blinded by the Light 2019 online watch.2019 LightHouse
