On July 4th, I wasn’t feeling well and decided to sit and watch the Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers documentary called Runnin’ Down a Dream that is now streaming on Netflix. I figured I might as well watch one of America’s greatest rock bands ever on our country’s birthday.
The film is by Director Peter Bogdanovich and released in 2008 by Warner Brothers. When it was originally released it was as a 4 disc box set with the first 2 DVD disc being the movie, the third DVD disc was the 30th Anniversary concert and the fourth disc was a CD of rare tracks. I just might pick this up if I see it when I am out.
Now be warned, if you plan to watch make sure you have 4 hours available because once you start there is no stopping. The 4 hours flies by as this documentary is so entertaining mixed with great interviews and great footage of the band’s history. Any fan of Tom Petty should check it out as you will not be disappointed.
