[The film] was directed by Prince, and he does a good, sound job without finding an answer to the problem of all directors of rock concert films: After you have exhausted the basic repertory of obvious shots and audience reactions, what do you do then?April 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
The utopian rocker, whose manner and music promise a blissful, dreamy union of the races and the sexes, doesn`t need a story line to communicate his meanings, which remain by pop standards unusually complex and considered.April 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Prince provides musicvideo addicts with a pure fix of visual and aural synchronicity.
Musically, it's a matter of opinion, but from the sparse funk of the title tune to the bebop blow-out around Charlie Parker's Now's the Time, this guiltless grooving in Eden fizzes with brilliantly choreographed wit and invention.
Prince, whose ties to soul and jazz are clearer than ever before, whose willingness to embrace different musical forms seems to grow all the time, has never cast a stronger spell.
As a concert film, judged from the music, Sign O' the Times is near the top. As a movie -- carrying inside it the embryo of other movies -- it's not fully satisfying.
