Purple Rain (1984)

Prince. Purple Rain. What else is there to say?


Blayne and I ended up doing out episode of Faux Reel Podcast a few weeks before we had heard the terrible new of Prince’s untimely death. It’s sad to know that this talented unicorn has left our Earth but to know he’ll live on not only in his music but also his mediocre acting career.

This film tells a story of a victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father (Clarence Williams III), the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero). But another musician, Morris (Morris Day), looks to steal the Kid’s spotlight — and his girl.

But here’s our rendition!

This episode is dedicated to Prince and we now know what it sounds like when doves cry. (tear)
