Purple Rain (1984)
Excellent interpretation of mid 1980's subculture
As a young man of age 21 in 1984, I really identified with the music of the era. You did not have to be a fan of Prince to hear his music. It was everywhere. Music does a good job of transporting one to a specific part of their lives, whether or not it is intentional, or pleasurable. Princes' portrayal of "the Kid" faced the same struggles that those of that age do. Peer acceptance, self discovery, love, all take me back to my college days, sitting in my car between classes, listening to this sound track over and over. We see Prince today in the equation of the same principles, identity, self-worth, and acceptance. It's a good movie. If you're in your mid 30's now, it'll take you back ten years, with the smiles,... and tears.
Excellent depiction of a time in US history where family was top priority
An excellent film that will take you back to the way things used to be in this country. Set during the depression around Christmas, it outlines farm life in West Virginia and a large extended family. An accurate cross section is detailed within the movie, and you will quickly become absorbed. We watch it every year, with the lights out, to remind us of a time when there was no money, limited resources, no materialism of today's youth, and none of the perversion that has eroded our present-day United States. A MUST see film. It is not the commercial version of the "Walton's" that rose to popularity during the 1970's. Although it was the pilot, it is so much more when viewed out this reference. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Try not using a telephone for a week. You'll understand.
