Genre: Animation, Drama, Fantasy. Dir: Alan Parker. Country: UK.
Alan Parker’s vivid film interpretation of the British rock combo’s classic concept album The Wall fuses curious fantasy with dark, tragic drama on an epic scale. Antihero Pink is beaten down by life from his earliest childhood days in WWII Britain, and despite his rise to rock-star fame, he continues to build a “wall” around himself. The film makes innovative use of sets, costumes and special effects, imbuing the movie with a bizarre surrealism worthy of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali. Both disturbing and bedazzling, this is a must-see film for any music lover. Stars Bob Geldof and Bob Hoskins.
