“PURPLE RAIN: TERROR BEYOND BELIEF shines a darker shade of purple on the ‘greatest music movie of them all.’ If ‘Darling Nikki’ was all it took for Tipper Gore to start the PMRC, one wonders what PR:TBB might have done for the MPAA. Unlike other works of appropriation which selectively reorganize ‘bites’ into a new decontexualized construct, PR:TBB pushes an existing, diegetic act of violence a few cinematic degrees further, and then lets the third act play through (albeit without Apollonia’s presence). This is PURPLE RAIN as you have seen it before (yet not).”
