The story of the famous and influential 1960s rock band and its lead singer and composer, Jim Morrison, from his days as a UCLA film student in Los Angeles, to his untimely death in Paris, France at age 27 in 1971.
Longer than a music video, shorter than a feature film, this is essentially a short film version of Pink Floyd's album "The Final Cut". As such, the visual material is much the same as a ... See full summary »
The movie tells the story of rock singer "Pink" who is sitting in his hotel room in Los Angeles, burnt out from the music business and only able to perform on stage with the help of drugs. Based on the 1979 double album "The Wall" by Pink Floyd, the film begins in Pink's youth where he is crushed by the love of his mother. Several years later, he is punished by the teachers in school because he is starting to write poems. He slowly begins to build a wall around himself to be protected from the world outside. The film shows all this in massive and epic pictures until the very end where he tears down the wall and breaks free. Written by

The song "What Shall We Do Now?" was originally written and recorded for "The Wall" album, but cut for time constraints in favor of "Empty Spaces" (which is a shorter rewrite of the first half of WSWDN). This was included in the original lyric notes from the album because the change was made just prior to the final edit. It was used on the Wall live tour in 1980-81. See more »
During "Run Like Hell", when Pink's followers set an attack dog loose on an innocent man in the alleyway, the foam protective sleeve is visible on the victim's arm. See more »

Roger Waters has weaved a compelling visual of the journey of a disturbed and misled mind. Though the viewer is sometimes left to sort out obscure animations and confusing images, it is not without direction. Subsequent viewings of this film reveal substance that only a genius could imbue in his writing. Character development through such subtle action in places casts a light upon Roger Waters as a person who understands the frailty of the human mind. The main character, Pink, portrays angles of the human condition we all face at some point by embodying a victimized character: sick over the loss of his father to the war; negatively spotlighted at school for talents that are apparently unfavorable at the time; unable or just unwilling to relate to his wife; and ultimately shut off from effectively relating to others because of an inability to express himself in ways that others understand.
Not only is the story captivating, but the music is such that it will always be noted as not only ahead of its time, but timeless.
The Wall is a masterpiece of storytelling, but not in the traditional sense. One must not watch this film expecting everything on a silver platter. Symbolism and metaphors abound, leaving a great deal of interpretation and adaptation to the viewer. Sit with an open mind and let Waters' character help you read into yourself.
