the KIDs (22) BASEMENT -- HALLWAYS AND BEDROOM

and references to Princes' bedroom in songs up to Purple Rain era music

.

There is a lot of interesting objects and art attached to that room.
That is one space I wish I had the opportunity to walk through just once

There are a lot of songs attached to the Kids bedroom space
The house and that bedroom space if seperated from the rest of the movies not performances, showcased some very intense acting, that I think shows some very good acting from Prince.
He's been practicing those intense emotions since Leaving 4 New York

if you look into the space in the photos I'm posting there are probably a lot of things you've missed that fill the moving space of the film...

I keep your picture beside my bed

He didn't like living alone
The house where he lived had many hallways
It was a long walk 2 his bedroom
Because 2 him each hallway represented an emotion
Every one vastly different from the next
One day while she was with him
He decided 2 name each one
She walked by his side, one hand on his thigh
No - she was sort of half a step behind him
Yeah, the grip on his thigh intensified
As they walked slowly through the corridor
He named the hallway "Lust"
And as they passed through the next one
He named it "Fear"
The grip she now loosened
So he walked faster
Her hands now trembling
She let dropped 2 her side as he wrote the word "Insecurity"
He looked into her eyes and smiled a demon smile
And quickly walked onto the next
Corridor after corridor
He named almost all when suddenly… he stopped
He picked up the word "Hate"
She was gone
So he picked up another – "Pain"

When I was a kid watching this flick, this room was like an alternate reality compared to the rest of the locations. Like a part of his brain came to life onscreen.

yes I loved that contrast. Both areas had an air of danger to them, secrets. The upstairs looked stopped in time, the basement looked in flux

Just then SUNLIGHT blazes in through the
casement windows. Water droplets
glisten brilliantly in the morning
light. He turns the water off, goes to
put the hose back -- stops suddenly,
surprised...

...his Mother's earring lies on the
floor.

He's entranced, picks it up, stares at
it a moment. Everything he's been
through comes rushing at him like a loco
motive. The confusion, the shouting and
violence, the darkness that eclipsed his
parents' life -- it's all there, lying
just below the surface, settled into his
heart. But now there's a difference --
he knows it's there and has discovered
what could happen when it takes control
of your life.

So as he stands in the basement, on the
clean cellar floor, he realizes
that...he'll just take one thing at a
time, and do it right. Better than
anybody else. He smiles, realizes that
in the last few weeks, he's never felt
better than he feels right now. He
turns quickly, flips the earring to the
stairwell...

yes that energy is real lol that intensity along with the live performances is what I feel make that movie

there was a lot of 'violent' energy in the movie, between Prince and his band and Prince and the Time as well

No i could never sleep in that room. Well maybe in my teens or 20s but not today. It's too active. That room is made for activity, creativity etc

5) INT. BASEMENT, PRINCE'S HOME -- NIGHT




Prince sits in front of the mirror,
finishes applying his makeup. Black
hair flowing, eyes wide and fantastic,
he regards himself a moment before
jumging up. He puts on a high-collared
overcoat, grabs his guitar moves
quickly to the basement window. He
hoists himself through it, disappears
into the night.

(22) BASEMENT -- HALLWAYS AND BEDROOM -- NIGHT



A naked LIGHT BULB snaps ON.



It dangles like a pendulum, casting strange shadows.

The basement is partitioned off into a series of rooms,

interconnected by a labyrinthine coimbination of passages.



An old washer and dryer stand in the corner.



Prince descends the steps slowly.

He comes through a door, closes it behind him.

He moves down a narrow passageway, enters a small cramped BEDROOM.



He closes the door and locks it behind him.



MOONLIGHT filters in throuch the cacement windows.



The total effect is like entering a womb, a deep dark chamber of security and safety.

Lying heavily onto his bed, he sighs long and deep, his eyes piercing the darkness...



FADE OUT:

(70) INT. PRINCE'S ANTECHAMBER AND BEDROOM -- NIGHT CU--Clock.

We See: 8:15.



Prince sits, on his bed, staring at the clock, seemingly lost in thoucht.

He gets up, rummages through his coat pockets, pulls out Lisa's and Wendy's tape.



He snaps it into the player, settles back.




MUSIC fills the room.

He listens intently a moment, his face placid.

He closes his eyes, tries to relax ...

Suddenly a DOOR SLAMS in the far reaches of the house.

Harsh FOOTSTEPS echo through the upstairs hallway.

Prince remains still, his eyes closed...



Then another deathly DOOR SLAM!

GLASS dissolves in its frame and trickles to the floor like icicles.

Resentment surges in him like a tornado.

He rises purposefully, turns the MUSIC up...

Hey Oldfriends4sale, there is something odd happening with a lot of your images that you post. I don’t see them, and someone else also commented that they don’t see your images. It’s odd because some show and others don’t. What I get instead for most of your images is a text description of what they might contain. For example, your last post with 3 images only had the text “May be an image of 1 person, May be an image of 1 person, May be an image of 1 person.”.
I was able to see the post with the images of Prince, the box of papers/music sheets and Prince and the earring. The post after that - no images - just text that says “ No photo description available. No photo description available.”. And the post after that is as described earlier - just text attempting to describe the images.
Hope that helps you figure what’s going on, coz I’m sure others would love to see the pics you take time and care to post.
I’d post a screenshot of what I see, but I can’t be bothered to do that using this really old system that makes it almost impossible to post a pic without frustration lol Don’t even get me started on paragraphs!
- I don't proof read. Dael with it.

Oh wow! There are post numbers! Thanks. Never noticed them all these years.
Can’t see pics of posts numbers 2, 15 and 16. Hope that helps. Has been happening with some of your other posts for a few weeks now. Thought it was just my device until someone else also mentioned it just before I did. Might’ve been in another thread though.
