85% Gandhi (1982) Its faults rather pale beside the epic nature of its theme, and Kingsley's performance in the central role is outstanding. - Time Out EDIT

70% Purple Rain (1984) [The plot] is all no more than fancy padding around the film's heart, which only starts to really pump when Prince is up on stage: a teasing, hot amalgam of Marc Bolan, Nijinsky and the Scarlet Pimpernel, as electric as his guitar. - Time Out EDIT
