PRINCE: SIGN O’ THE TIMES
Director: Prince Run Time: 84 min. Release Year: 1987
Starring: Dr. Fink, Levi Seacer Jr., Miko Weaver, Prince, Sheila E.
Music legend Prince and his band perform 13 numbers, most of them from his double album, “Sign ‘o’ the Times.” This is high-energy stuff: neon signs flash above the stage, suggesting the honky-tonk district of a big city, and between numbers there are vignettes of street life. Sheila E, Boni Boyer and Cat provide rhythmic, vocal and physical pyrotechnics while Sheena Easton appears in a film within a film, her rock video “U Got the Look.”
In constant motion, never far from center stage, is Prince, Minnesota’s charismatic virtuoso, giving the performance of a lifetime.
