15. Purple Rain (1984)
Mr Prince officially went from cult figure to pop superstar on the release of this semi-biographical movie. P plays "The Kid" and the film details his troubles with his band, his parents and his woman. All of this is soundtracked by classics like Let's Go Crazy, When Doves Cry, I Would Die For U and the title track, during which Prince's guitar apparently ejaculates over the audience. Go and watch the film - it definitely does.
