The Wall itself was an arena width monstrosity. In the 2014 recreated film production it stands 35 feet high and averages around 240 feet wide, depending on the scale of the venue. It was fashioned from around 400 cardboard bricks of 5 feet by 2.5 feet that arrive flat packed for assembly by the crew. See more »
At the final war memorial, Roger sits down with his bag beside him. He then moves to sit on a different memorial with his horn leaving his bag behind. In the new location, one camera angle incorrectly shows a bag beside him while another shows no bag. See more »
As someone who can get easily tired of concert films, or just concerts in general (I much prefer hearing music by myself), this really did as much as it could. I think the stage in which Waters performed is amazing, and it's a really heightened experience, one that as with every concert loses its impact as it goes on. But that's as far as the concert goes. The film does a great job of really emphasizing the visual texture and atmosphere of the concert while also adding in a bit of "road film" tendencies, which I think was a clever way to really bring everything together. Overall, this is a really neat package for every Pink Floyd fan.
