Disc 2 offers three short documentaries drawing from contemporary interviews with the filmmakers, the management of First Avenue (the Minneapolis club where Prince began his rise to fame), and members of Prince's former band, The Revolution (including Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman). Footage from MTV's premiere party is notable for the absence of a single worthwhile utterance from any of the party's celebrity attendees, but MTV's flip side saves the day: eight music videos from Prince, the Time, and Apollonia 6. Sizzling, post-film performances of "Take Me with U" and "I Would Die 4 U/Baby I'm a Star" both feature extended instrumental jams and exciting looks at the real-life Revolution's Purple Rain tour.
The only thing missing is movie outtakes, many of which are referenced in Magnoli's commentary. Still, this otherwise definitive Purple Rain is a sumptuous feast for eyes and ears. --Michael Mikesell
One of the all time classic movies, if you love Prince you'll love Purple Rain.
This movie and music is even better now that we all know he lived, loved, crashed, and got back up just like the Rain showed us all!
If you watch the movie you can see the energy of the crowd, I love how every one is have a great time in this movie.
It is an epic rock story what did you expect. It is good and watchable. The music is awesome and if you haven't seen it it is worth the watch.Published 12 days ago by Kelly Pippin

Great story, great soundtrack. Very intriguing and interesting to see a little more of the rock icon than what's on stage.Published 21 days ago by Regina M. Fried
