Pink Floyd's: the Wall is a visual and lyrical extravaganza. Color's, the lack of colors, drabbness, and isolation all reign free in the world of a rock singer named "Pink." The movie plays in crazy animation sequences, ear drum jarring music, and depressing premises to display feelings of insanity and loneliness. Pink surrounds himself with objects both mentally and physically due to harsh pains in his past that are told in glimpsing flashbacks.The Wall is not for people who must have an immediate …

Pros: music, visuals, and strangely enough - the story     Cons: sometimes a tad bit bizarre, to say it nicely     The Bottom Line: It's strange, but the music is there and if you shove the unusual visuals aside, a story as well     Of course, being a member of the Floyd culture, it was required that I watch this movie.

About this movie


Loosely based on the life story of Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd's original front man (who was kicked out of the band for his bizarre and disturbing behavior only to go insane shortly thereafter), PINK FLOYD: THE WALL stars Bob Geldof as Pink, a mentally damaged man who has gone from a hopeful child artist to a burned-out rock star drifting away from reality. As Pink festers in his hotel room, elements of his abusive childhood come back to haunt him until he begins to descend into absolute madness. <br> <br> Director Alan Parker's intense and fully realized film interpretation of the English band's classic album THE WALL melds whimsical fantasy with dark Shakespearean drama. The film makes innovative use of sets, costumes, and special effects to create a unique surrealistic strangeness worthy of Luis Buquel and Salvador Dali's UN CHIEN ANDALOU. Both disturbing and bedazzling, PINK FLOYD: THE WALL is a must-see film for any music lover.
