“Sign O’ the Times, a concert movie now remarkably hard to find in the U.S., . . . remains the star’s finest cinematic moment, a svelte jolt of everything that captures Prince at his most dazzling.”
—Elias Leight, Rolling Stone, 22 April 2016
“Prince in all his glory, at the apex of his creativity, undiluted and raw.”
—Sergio Mims, Shadow and Act, 6 August 2016
