"Great Edition"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The film “Purple Rain” is of course one of the best already, but this particular edition is good in the sense that the second disc gives a further glimpse into what is behind the film.

There are no actual interviews with Prince himself, so for many that may be disappointing, but the special features I still found to be interesting, including interviews with Wendy & Lisa, music videos (inc. a few live performances of Prince), footage from the MTV premiere party, a behind the scenes look at some of the scenes and more.

The film itself, as always Excellent, and for the price of this, well worth it.

If special features are not so important, it would probably be a better deal to purchase the triple DVD, which is a similar price for all 3 of Princes films.

"My world changed in 1984 because of the movie Purple Rain"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have loved Prince Rogers Nelson since I first discovered his music in the 80s. Purple Rain forever!

Description

A young man (Prince) with a talent for music has begun a career with much promise. He meets an aspiring singer, Apollonia, and finds that talent alone isn't all that he needs. A complicated tale of his repeating his father's self destructive behavior, losing Apollonia to another singer (Morris Day), and his coming to grips with his own connection to other people ensues.
