The story of THE WALL is told simply with the music of Pink Floyd, images and natural effects. There is no conventional dialogue to process the narrative. Our story is about Pink, a Rock and Roll performer, who sits locked in a Hotel room, somewhere in Los Angeles. Too many shows, too much dope, too much applause: a burned out case. On the TV, an all too familiar war flickers on the screen. We shuffle time and place, reality and nightmare as we venture into Pink's painful memories, each one a "brick" in the wall as he gradually built around his feelings.

Slowly he withdraws from the real world and slips further into his nightmare as he imagines himself as an unfeeling demagogue, for whom all that is left is the demonstration of power over his unthinking audience, the culmination of the odious excess of his own world and the world around him. His internal self trial follows, as the witnesses of his past life, the very people who have contributed to the building of the wall, come forward and testify against him.

 Fantastic

This film is brilliant, and is essential in any Pink Floyd fan's collection. I owned this film originally on vhs, and decided to update and buy this Deluxe edition and you can really tell the difference. It has all been remastered and the picture is so much clearer and sharper. It contains little to no spoken dialogue apart from Bob Hoskin's (who plays the tour manager) one liner. Instead it is all told through the music of Pink Floyd, with the lyrics revealing the main character Pink's inner thoughts and psyche. I feel I could never tire of watching this film as each time you seem to pick on something new and come up with a slightly different conclusion. On top of that how could you ever tire of Pink Floyd's music?

If you enjoyed this I recommend Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii.

 ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE

Having seen Pink Floyd perform the concert at Earls Court this is a must have rerecorded in quality 5/1 surround and with Geralds Scarfes films brilliant also watch Roger Waters live in Berlin much better than the dissapointing TV version and also rerecorded in quality 5/1

 WOW

I'm a massive Floyd fan, and this is a great film with classic visial images, story and music (obviously).
after seeing this you totally understand what's going on in the Wall album, where I was previously wondering what the hell was going on.
top stuff
