Pink Floyd – The Wall: The Movie
TAGS:

Limited Edition re-release of Alan Parker’s 1982 movie, based on Roger Water’s tale of a rock star’s descent into madness. Without dialogue, it feels more like an extended 95-minute music video; the Floyd’s music set to some powerful visuals, including startling Gerald Scarfe animations. What lifts The Wall above MTV fodder is a surprisingly magnetic performance by Bob Geldof as “Pink” which helps Parker’s treatment to stand the test of time rather better than the music.
