This video is not new. It’s of my favorite Bruce Springsteen song: “Highway Patrolman” from the seminal Nebraska, originally released in 1982. The video was directed by Sean Penn, made of clips from his writing and directorial debut, The Indian Runner, from 1991, which is based on the slim narrative outlined in Springsteen’s song. The film stars David Morse (St. Elsewhere’s Dr. Jack Morrison and Treme’s Lt. Colson) and an early Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn from LOTR, among many many other roles you’ve seen him in). I was only 8 years old when this amazing album came out, but I didn’t discover it until about 5 years ago. I was only a junior in high school when this movie came out, so it’s no wonder it never hit my radar until just now. But here we are, thirty years since the release of the album and twenty years later since the movie, and my interest is piqued. It’s safe to say it’s going to be a disappointment, because of my love of this musician, this song, and these actors. Fingers crossed it’s actually pretty good.
