Bruce Springsteen has made his directorial debut with the ten minute video for the song “Hunter of Invisible Game” off his most recent album, “High Hopes.”
The video is non-linear and kinda tough to follow, if there is a story at all. It seems to be more of a meandering thing. What is apparent is that it is Bruce Springsteen fare, with its portrayal of a family man wandering through corn fields and lying shirtless in a creek (props on the 64-year-old abs, btw). The whole thing looks really…. Majestic, is the word, I suppose.
The recent album of covers and b-sides, featuring Tom Morello on most of the tracks, is a little jarring and very patchy, but this is a high-quality Boss song and the video makes it all the better.
Best part: seeing Bruce Springsteen wearing reading glasses. Forget denim jackets; that’s what makes an everyman.
