Violet Precipitation

"Your lips would make a lolly pop too happy."
LOL

I watched "Purple Rain" for the first time ever last night and loved it. I've been a huge Prince fan for many a year, but never thought his movies were worth my time. "Under the Cherry Moon" was my first foray, and I loved it too. Incredibly campy fun. But I had no idea I was going to enjoy "Purple Rain" quite so thoroughly. Granted there are some hammy scenes and the dialogue is a little bit "soap opera" at times, but overall, the music goes so well with the story. I guess that's my biggest revelation: seeing the music from the soundtrack in it's proper context, 'cause honestly, "Purple Rain" has never been my favourite Prince album.

Special nod to Morris Day.... pimp-tacular gay, don't stand in his way, oh-kaaaay! (snap, snap, snap). He steals almost every scene he's in just by being uber fabulous and slimy. Completely "unbelievable" in the role of a ladies man; but that's what makes watching him so much fun.

And I couldn't help but think that "The Kid's" (Prince's character) whole romantic technique, and distorted view of how romance/relationships should be, was inherent of someone who grew up completely isolated with fucked-up parents and enormous talent. I actually got a little choked-up about how conflicted he was about how his father mistreated his mother, when he couldn't help but admire the man for being a musical genius. Sad, but compelling.

I was also thinking the whole romance with Appolonia could've easily replaced "she" with a "he", in his rough, teasing manner with her. It would've made him seem much-less like an asshole had he been getting a male-romantic interest to strip and jump in a cold lake and taken-off on his purple bat-cycle.

Also... I've never understood how anyone in their right mind could find Prince sexy. Uhhh.... I hate to admit it, but the little half-pint has quite the body in this movie, and his sexual presence is quite provocative. I'd never seen him lookin' quite so good. Wonders never cease.

I've never seen any movie featuring Prince and, despite your glowing review, still do not expect to do so anytime soon.

Misster Kitty said...

Far be it for me to point out that it's been 2 weeks since you last posted, but, well, It's been two weeks since you last posted.
