One of the best period movies I've ever seen.
18 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie portrays the common teen attitude of the late 60's and is a useful as well as humorous look at an era that some of us never knew. I've seen this movie in the early 90's and I now wish I could share it with my kids. Even the disgruntled teens of today would relate to PURPLE HAZE.

PURPLE HAZE is a highly overlooked classic. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll find yourself relating to one or more of the leading characters, being drawn in like a close friend or family member is telling you this story.

The soundtrack is equally awesome and everybody should INSIST that this movie be returned to print.

Great acting, plot, irony, ending...........
