    Both Nils and Garry appear to be wearing the shirts they wore for the filming of the Murder Incorporated video. After the filming they played a number of old songs. I'd guess this is backstage at that filming.

    100% correct. The Blood Brothers film included a few snippets from the dressing room ahead of that performance....but had never seen this raw footage.

    I am looking forward to seeing this at my home 'cinema' (120inch screen projection) and experience this again. I was actually not that impressed with the sound in the Cineworld cinema...yes a big sound but felt unbalanced. The music seemed fine but vocals sounded quite separate from the music and raw...like the sound setting might be ok for regular movies but not for a concert...like it needed some tweak..unlike the sound of the audio release which sounds great. May have just been the particular cinema i went to. Anyone else felt sound in cinema hall was not quite top notch?

    I can confirm this was better experience watching at home than the cinema :D

    Got my Blu-Ray copy yesterday and watched it only for the second time (only saw it once at the cinema on the first night)....just as fantastic as it was in the cinema. A superb coming of age movie which not only shows the power and influence of Springsteen's evocative songs on a young teenage Asian guy in mid 80's Britain, but also how these songs can change people's lives ( as it did mine in 1982). The racism of the time was really powerfully encapsulated, and the director used small details like how Javed and his sister had to go to  daytime discos for their fun and parties as they were not allowed to go to nightclubs and such by their strict muslim parents. Muslim life was really well articulated in the movie, and the ending of the film especially was very moving and well acted. I wanted for years to see a really good UK movie made which showed the real power and life changing influence of Bruce's music to a wider audience particularly in the UK and finally this summer we got one. It really hit home with me as I saw an awful lot of the experience I went through with discovering Bruce's music 5 years earlier than when the film is set.

    Superb film in my opinion.

    Agree 1000%. Especially moving to me as an Indian Springsteen fan who got into his music around the same time around the same age. Watched the bluray yesterday too and loved it. Though was more like the 4th or 5th time since the cinema because of the magic of streaming lol.

    Oh FFS.  Now it's on in TWO more cinemas in Oxford, and a lot cheaper too.  That has made me very cross indeed.  Shitty way to treat people.

    I would agree...i thought it was a one night only special when I saw on 28 Oct and therefore understood and accepted it being a expensive ticket than a regular movie. As far as I can see it is billed as an EVENT hence unique pricing. Our local cinema chains are only £4.99 for movies usually but not this film.

    As for waiting for the DVD, I can't wait personally coz I can't really afford to see the move on big screen again for 17 bucks a pop and I always like shit better the second time around or at least pick up stuff I didn't the first time.  

    Call it me absorbing stuff slow.

    I started laughing real hard when the sweep got underway, but no one else seemed to get the joke. (reminds me of Mr. B trying to vacuum. Is it genetic, I wonder?)

    Did he think to himself I've had enough of this shit as he walked off or did he disappear to go off to get a pan or bag for the waste? Guess we'll never know lol
