Bruce Springsteen documentary about “Darkness” sounds more than promising

By Sean O’Connell One film on my “Must See” list for the Toronto International Film Festival this year is “The Promise,” Thom Powers’ documentary about the making of Bruce Springsteen’s classic rock album “Darkness on the Edge of Town.”
I’m not even a big Bruce fan, though I’ve enjoyed a bunch of his songs and have seen him in concert a few times. I’m an admitted documentary fan, and I especially like films that dive into the creative process, whether it’s of musicians, writers or filmmakers. And from what I’m hearing, Powers’ film really dissects the collaborations that went into making “Darkness.”
I’m also hearing “The Promise” is light on concert footage, which is just fine. I’d rather see exclusive shots of The Boss in the studio, and not on the stage … which you can get on VH1 Classics or Palladium any night of the week.
Rolling Stone has a few more details about “Promise,” including a rumor that Edward Norton might interview Springsteen as part of TIFF (though that’s unconfirmed). I’ll bring you more on “Promise” once I get to Toronto. I promise.
