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 »

Live versions of the songs, filmed in an old Pompeii amphitheater. Songs included are Echoes (split into 2 parts), Careful with that axe, Eugene, A saucerful of secrets, One of those days, Set the controls for the heart of the sun, Mademoiselle nobbs (Seamus, but with Rick's dog on vocals). "Careful" and "Set the controls" are shot at night with minimal lighting, setting a beautiful mood. And the live Saucerful just has to be seen, with Waters jumping around in the sunlight banging the huge gong. The 80-minute version features studio footage from the recordings of Dark side of the Moon, with alternate versions of Us and them, On the run and Brain Damage, as well as interviews with the band.Written by

During "One of These Days" the film is primarily of Nick Mason's manic drumming. Much more was filmed of the rest of the band, particularly David Gilmour's slide guitar, but all except the tapes of Mason were lost. See more »
In both parts of the song "Echoes", Nick Mason's sunglasses disappear and reappear a couple of times, indicating that the performance in Pompeii was filmed in sections rather than just one take. Or that there were two takes of the song and footage was used from both. See more »
All that media stuff is all very irrelevant. If people come to a concert and they don't like it, they don't come again.

Pink Floyd,recorded live among the ruins of Pompeii. This 90 Minute film contains some superior versions of Floyd classics and also includes footage of the band eating at lunchtime and in the studio recording "Dark Side of The Moon". Some of the earlier tapes don't have the extra Dark Side footage,which was added later to help sales. Besides a few originals,tracks include "Echoes","A Saucerful of Secrets","Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun","Careful With That Axe,Eugene","One of These Days" and also some alternate versions of a few Dark Side classics. Any Floyd fan out there who has not seen this should try to find it. It is interesting to say the least and I enjoy it much more than "The Wall"
