Overview

The commentary by Roger Waters and the film's graphic designer Gerald Scarfe is the same one that appears on the earlier DVD, but it is a good track. Waters' music inspires as much fan loyalty as he does skepticism, and he comes across here in ways that will appeal to his fan base while also providing ammunition for those who find him to be little more than a self-centered narcissist. Two different making-of documentaries (one much more recently produced than the other), production stills, and the film's trailer round out this fine package that will please fans of the film as well as Pink Floyd enthusiasts.

    Tribute To Syd Barrett and Roger Waters Bio

    My father made me watch this when I was just a wee little lad, I was 8 or 9 years old, kind of young to be watching something of this extent, considering the aspects of the film and also that I was raised under a strict religious household, I wasn't even allowed to watch rated R films, but yet this was the one film that I was allowed to watch for some reason. And I'm proud to have viewed it. At that age, I had no idea what the hell was going on, but as years went by and as I viewed this piece more and more and listened the the album a gazillion times, I have much appreciation for the film and music. Even though that this film is more of a Roger Waters project and not Pink Floyd, Floyd's presence still lingers and catapaults the viewer into a glimpse of what becoming a star can be like. Many of us today are narcisistic enough to look at Fame and Stardom and want it so badly, but along with Fame can come a lot of Pain, Depression, Tragedy, Psychological Breakdown, and much more. That's why I love this story, it's about a rock star named Pink whose life spins out of control even when he's at the top of his game. He loses himself and seems to have no escape from his troubles. Alan Parker does a fine job capturing Pink Floyd's ultra-psychedelic story onto film along with amazing cartoon sequences that flows magically with the music ever so clearly. To myself this film is very much a tribute to the original lead member, Syd Barrett, whom went a little crazy, more so contributed by the amount of psychedelics Barrett had been taking, but also I see this as more of a story about Roger Waters, his life seems to resemble that of the lead character. Also Waters comments on how he felt a strange wall between him and his audience during their shows, hence why this is called the Wall. This film and music is definitely innovative and groundbreaking and has yet to be beaten by any other musican or group. People would say that The Who's "Tommy" was the first and best, but Pink Floyd went above and beyond. Especially by the musical standpoint. The many hits from "Another Brick In The Wall," "Hey You," and "Comfortably Numb." Even the live performances for this album was creative and mind bending, definitely groundbreaking and super psychedelic with the band playing behind a giant wall in the first set, then the wall breaks down following many major crazy video monitor screens that portrayed collages of intense images, above and beyond what they had been doing all along since their Meddle and Dark Side of The Moon days. Pink Floyd is definitely in a realm of their own and is why they are known to be the greatest band of all time, creating a new sound and wave that has influenced multiple artists throughout the past 4 decades and will continue to do so.

    Artistic Masterpeice

    The Wall is truly an artistic masterpeice.This work of art perfectly incorporates amazing animation with the story of a man named Pink, a dark, disturbed character, and music from the dually titled album. This movie will really make you appreciate the style of Pink Floyd, and crave more. If you ever get the chance to see The Wall, laser-light-show, don't pass it up.

    Pop ART Film

    Pink Floyd's album filmed with only the music guiding the story. The result is a movie that will thrill Pink fans but might put off others.

    All in All, It's All About THE WALL!

    The music is classic. The movie, with its not-so-subtle symbolism and often personally indentifiable themes greatly support each tune. It is nothing short of artistic genius. It stands alone, and it likely will for a long, long time!

    WHAT CAN I SAY?

    This is absolutely the trippiest movies you will ever see.If you didn't think Napolean Dynmaite made any sense, you're in for a treat. The animated sequences are crazy enough but the creepiest part for me was definately during the second solo of Comfortably Numb. You'll see.

    Tear down the wall but not The Wall

    This has to be one of the greatest musical of all time. Pink isn't well, that's for sure. The movie is in perfect health though. This description of a lonely psychotic rock star (Geldof)with grandiose illusions would be perfect for the psychology classroom. Although the subject matter is gloomy, it is told in such an artistic matter that it draws you into his trainwrecked life. The animation was cutting edge when the movie first came out and added greatly to it. I knew when I first heard the album that it had to be told by a film. So The Wall is complete. Pay the doctor when you get up from the couch, lol.

    Woot-Worthy

    This movie is really cool. It is Floyd-tastic! I mean, the really cool animated parts, the Quasi-Nazi scenes, and God knows what else. I give it 5 woots, and that's a lot of woots. It includes two extra songs from the Album. The songs 'When the Tigers Broke Free', and 'What Shall We Do Now?'. Both are some of my favorites. If you don't have anything better to do then just listen to this movie. You don't even need to pay much attention to what the hell's going on, and just listen to it. Because it is that cool. Yeah. 'The Lunatic is on the grass....'

    Astounding.

    Pink Floyd takes their phenomenal talent and both music and big screen for an amazing experience. Through imagry and music unparalleled, you are taken through one man's amplified pain and angush and a lifetime of events and experiences which have all lead to the building of his own all-emcompassing ''wall''. Although the specific images are becoming a little dated in the 2000's, younger viewers can easily identify with the sense of school-age oppression conveyed, while older viewers will likely connect with other subjects and deeper meanings. The emotions are sad to sickening, but very artfully conveyed! Pink Floyd (and Bob Geldof) - not just a bunch of artists, a phenomenon! If you're concerned about polluting your eyes with slightly naked bodies, this, Michelangelo, Picasso, Dhali, DeVinci, and grade school biology text books should all be avoided.

    I know the Wall

    Yes, I know it well...like an old friend. I don't need Pink Floyd to tell me about it, and the strange love/hate relationship one has with it, but they tell the story so beautifully.

    Sweeet movie

    The first time i watched The Wall it was very weird but i still enjoyed it just because it was Pink Floyd, then i started to understand there lyrics more and more, after i got to where i knew what all they were singing about, i watched it again, thats when i appreciated The Wall more than ever. The thing that i like the most about it is everytime that i watch it if u look closely u will find something new in there that u didnt see before, or u will understand something better and that was because of the excellent directing and making of the movie, Thanx, Matt V

    TOTALLY AWESOME...

    This is a Masterpiece, a MUST SEE for any Rock fan. It gives you a view into the mind of the group PINK FLOYD. UNLIKE common belief that: ''One needs to be STONED or HIGH to understand it...'' all it takes is PAYING ATTENTION. This is a movie where DETAILS are essential and imperative. Watching it over will not only will give you a better view and better understanding but also a general prospective of Pink's emotional turmoil.

    The Wall between good and great!

    The Wall is a strange, surreal trip into human nature and with a little attention and thought, this simple shoe string budget masterpeice can telly you more abotu you then 1,000 years of religon. Even if you don't dig Pink Floyd, WATCH IT!

    Fenomenal

    The Wall, se ha convertido en la mejor obra de rock llevada a la pantalla hasta el momento. Cada una de sus escenas es un eslabon que te conduce a formar la telaraña mas completa y misteriosa que existe referente a los sentimientos humanos. Felicito a Roger Waters y a Pink Floyd por habernos regalado esta excelentisima obra de arte.

    EWW...BUT IN A GOOD WAY

    Recently I had borrowed PINK FLOYD-THE WALL from a friend. It has made it onto the list of the top 10 most distrubing, freaky, bizaree, and strange movies ever made. SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, 2001, and THE SHINING are also amoungst them. It movie is confusing and you have to read the back summary to figure out what is going on. There is little or no dialouge and the artist PINK (Floyd) has all this weird dreams. It desaerves 31/2 stars, but I rounded down. The animation is excellant, through freaky with strange creatures dancing on the screen. May I suggest listening to the album first? Oh, yes. This movie has a lot of nudity. Full showing of breats and nipples is frequent. All in all a good movie. With weird parts (children falling into a machine and coming out as long strands of meat, breaking free and destroying the school while raping each other.)galore. Well deserving of its R rating.

    Pink Floyd Rocks, but Movie is Disturbing...

    Hey you, Don't Get Me Wrong, but I just think the movie is a little on the weird side. The Album: My Fav of all time (sorry, Roger Waters, but my fav song is still ''Stairway to Heaven'') The Movie: I saw one movie that was weirder-''Being John Malkovich'', but The Wall is still weird, but moreover disturbing. But, hey what the hey, even though it deserves 4 1/2 stars, I love Floyd, so put up a 5, baby! Later
