    • Item: Purple Rain (R, 1984) movie Location: by: Famous

      When Purple Rain first came out, I wasn’t quite old enough to really appreciate the movie. This film was HUGE. Prince…making a movie?? That was all people were talking about in the early 80’s.

      The film itself, I believe –is loosely based on


      Prince’s own life. The acting is EXTREMELY stodgy.

      But who cares??? It’s Prince! I know that I never watched it for its cinematic greatness. The stars of this movie (Prince, Apollonia, The Time) were the real attractions.

      And since big rockstars at that time (especially ones as private as Prince) weren’t ...


      • making many movies–Purple Rain was a huge hit. Besides that, Purple Rain provided a little peek into what Prince was like.

        It was the first time that I really got to hear him talk, though he doesn’t speak much in Purple Rain. In addition to that, the movie fulfilled many fantasies about what Prince

        was like.

        In the movie, we get to see him be sad, full of angst, and sexual (ever so briefly, kind of…). And of course, there’s the music.

        That was the biggest draw for this film. Cinematically speaking, this film is incredibly weak.

        But because it is considered an “icon” for its time–it’s fabulous.
