All Critics (37) | Top Critics (10)

This documentary is every bit as special as the album, Springsteen's best in years. It's joyful, it's magical and, yes, it's life affirming, too.

[W]hen Zimny lets the images speak for themselves, "Letter to You" achieves a moving power.

With too much salutation and not enough action, this is a (fine) companion to the album but not a freestanding film.

An incredibly beautiful documentary... It's very illuminating.

The documentary buttresses the point that when it comes to passion to communicate through music, after all these years, Bruce Springsteen and his mates are still on fire.
