When I was a teenager I played guitar a lot, and that was one of my favorite movies at the time. I probably saw it 30-40 times, seriously. I actually just tracked down that scene a few months ago! It's a good one for sure.
Prince got a lot of credit for his guitar playing, but I still think he was underrated as a player. He had great technical proficiency, but more than that, he could wring soul from those strings. He knew when to melt faces, and when to just let the notes breathe. A true musician.
"Musical genius" gets bandied about for basically everyone nowadays, but it's absolutely accurate in Prince's case.
