Cinema Sentries says: “The series issues short works (about 130 pages or less) analyzing key movies portraying music in some fashion. The short length limits the detail, only allowing for a general overview of the film. Despite that limitation, Muir’s examination of Purple Rain provides a fascinating look at a classic rock film, and Magnoli’s stories emphasize the roadblocks filmmakers may encounter, even before shooting a single frame.”
