"We don't need no education. We don't need no thought control. No dark sarcasm in the classroom. Teacher, leave those kids alone. Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone. All in all you're just another Brick in the wall."

"...Elaborate camera effects and a quarter-hour of full-color animation....One of the most captivating and unusual assemblages of footage seen in a long time..."

"...Parker has brought plenty of energy to this project, and he has done his resourceful best to make it an overpowering experience....A shameless all-out assault on the senses..."

"At the core of this bleak psychodrama is Bob Geldof's acting debut as rockstar Pink..."

"[With] the Floyd's music set to powerful visuals, including startling Gerald Scarfe animations."
Loosely based on the life story of Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd's original front man (who was kicked out of the band for his bizarre and disturbing behavior only to go insane shortly thereafter), PINK FLOYD: THE WALL stars Bob Geldof as Pink, a mentally damaged man who has gone from a hopeful child artist to a burned-out rock star drifting away from reality. As Pink festers in his hotel room, elements of his abusive childhood come back to haunt him until he begins to descend into absolute madness.
Director Alan Parker's intense and fully realized film interpretation of the English band's classic album THE WALL melds whimsical fantasy with dark Shakespearean drama. The film makes innovative use of sets, costumes, and special effects to create a unique surrealistic strangeness worthy of Luis Bu˝uel and Salvador Dali's UN CHIEN ANDALOU. Both disturbing and bedazzling, PINK FLOYD: THE WALL is a must-see film for any music lover.
