My Prince-fan friend had to drag me to this film when it came out; I hated Prince, but was a fan of Elisa Fiorillo (the female vocalist for Love Machine), and hoped she'd be in the film. She wasn't, but the movie kind of got to me, and was instrumental in my getting over my phobic "hatred" of Prince. This movie, while a sequel to Purple Rain, is more a *fantasy* movie. It plays out like a dream, and if you have a hard time accepting a movie willing to suspend reality, then you're never really going to enjoy this film. The "romance" between Aura and the Kid develops oddly, just as one would expect anything with Prince to... the music is great, the dialogue throughout is very lyrical (almost like word jazz; the pacing, flow, and delivery is more important than the words uttered.), the sets and costumes are ethereal. Taken as a whole, and with an open mind, this movie works well.
