Under the Cherry Moon: Cringy or Classic?
After the success of the movie Purple Rain, Warner Brothers was so confident in their new star that they green-lit the next Prince movie without ever seeing a script. That movie was Under the Cherry Moon. The film was riddled with setbacks and cast changes. Also, Prince wanted to shoot the film in black and white even though the studio was against it. The movie critics were vicious but some softened their views less than 24 hours after his death.
