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
