Movie-Still Monday: Purple Rain (1984)

Prince Rogers Nelson (1958 – 2016) in Purple Rain (1984)

Along with the rest of the world, we at MoviefiedNYC mourn the loss of a creative giant gone too soon, Prince Rogers Nelson. If you are like us, you have spent the last few days listening to his amazing catalog of music and have also been blown away by how many hit songs he wrote for others. Prince scored our lives, and  his absence makes it all just feel a little too quiet. Prince makes an impressive feature film debut in Purple Rain, a hokey but captivating rock-video psychodrama.

Purple Rain (1984) – A young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his own dissatisfied band, as his star begins to rise.
