When song 'Another Brick in the Wall (II)' is performed, the orange overall outfits worn by the stage children are similar to those that Guantanamo inmates and / or ISIS captives have worn, have "Maggie's Farm" on the rear. This may be a reference to Bob Dylan's 'Maggie's Farm' song ('ain't gonna work on .. no more'), but more likely is to ex UK PM M. Thatcher whom R. Waters reviled in some of his lyrics on the last (Pink) Floyd Album 'The Final Cut.' See more »
The music was great - but be prepared for a left wing political event
I guess this film is pretty much what you would expect. The music/stage production/sound/video was amazing. Wonderful hearing all the Pink Floyd favorites and the band was amazing - my favorites were the two blond "twins" with the heavenly voices. But be prepared to sit through a very political event as Waters unabashedly puts all his politics on display. If he was really concerned about "us + them" he could have put a few shots of the twin towers burning and collapsing, or ISIS beheading prisoners in orange jumpsuits.
