Dearly beloved... we watched Purple Rain (1984) with our friend Christian Turner and we need to purify ourselves in the waters or Lake Minnetonka. There never has been and never will be another like Prince Rogers Nelson and there is no other movie like Purple Rain. This movie is so bananas it has to be seen to be believed. Prince and The Revolution, Morris Day and The Time and Apollonia all play fictionalized versions of themselves in a fantasyland Minneapolis where nightclub acts reign supreme, leather and lace are worn freely (during the day) and people make their way TO Minnesota to make it in the biz. You may finish the movie with more questions than answers but watching nearly the entire Purple Rain album performed in a packed club full of 1984 Central Casting extras makes it all worth while.
