Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 07/27/1984
"...When performing on-stage...[Prince] can be a riveting spectacle..."
Variety - 07/04/1984
"...An impressive feature film....[The concerts] are splendidly realized musicvid-type affairs, awash in purple-hued smoky lighting atmosphere and right-on camera work..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/20/2004
"Showcasing the performer at the height of his creative and commercial success....[T]he performances are nothing short of magical."
Uncut - 11/01/2004
"[T]his 1994 movie brought the liquid-hipped one to middle America, mutating his funk into warped guitar rock."

Product Description:

A brilliant, talented young musician struggles for success even as a rival musician threatens to supplant him, both professionally and romantically. "Purple Rain" features Prince, in his own inimitable style, performing many of his latest hits, including "Purple Rain," "When Doves Cry," and "Let's Go Crazy." Academy Awards: Best Original Song Score.

Plot Synopsis:

Music star Prince stars as "The Kid" in this semi-autobiographical film, which follows the escapades of a tortured young musician trying to survive in a dysfunctional environment. He finds solace in the affections of a lovely young singer, but his first love is making his funky, unique brand of music, which he performs at an ultra-hip Minneapolis nightclub. The Kid must also contend with Morris, his nemesis both in music and romance
The popular soundtrack of this highly successful film contains many of Prince's most popular tunes, such as "Let's Go Crazy", "When Doves Cry", and the title song.
