Rock N Roll Summer. Pink Floyd: The Wall
Sat, May 28, 2011, 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Directed by Alan Parker, 1982.
Inspired by Pink Floyd’s album of the same name, director Alan Parker’s revolutionary rock opera traces the troubled past of Pink (Bob Geldof), a depressed rock star at the end of his rope. With the wall as a metaphor for self-inflicted isolation, Pink is lost in despair, feeling trapped and desperately searching for a way out. The Wall‘s stylized blend of drama, music and Gerald Scarfe’s brilliant animation earned the film instant cult status.
Starring: Pink Floyd, Bob Geldof, Christine Hargreaves, James Laurenson, Bob Hoskins. Turner/MGM; Rated R; 95 minutes
