Pink Floyd - The Wall is a 1982 live-action/animated musical drama film directed by Alan Parker and Gerald Scarfe for animation segments, starring Bob Geldof as Pink. The film was based on 1979 album of the same name by Pink Floyd.


A confined but troubled rock star known as Pink, he was been descends into madness in the midst of his physical and social isolation from everyone.

Why It Rocks

  1. Amazing music scores by English rock band Pink Floyd and even Roger Waters to make it very faithful based on the album. (Waters also credited as screenplay)
  2. Glorious and smooth traditional animation from large threatening mechanical eagle (known as Reichsadler) in Goodbye Blue Sky to most popular marching hammers in Waiting For The Worm and various creatures in Trial segments by Gerald Scarfe, who is well known for the entire character designs from Disney's Hercules.
  3. Decent yet well-executed story where the main character Pink is simply based on Roger Waters history from deceased father in Battle of Anzio during World War 2 and with only little dialogue in the entire film.
  4. The movie has made an great imagery from mental isolation, war, fascism, dark or disturbing animated sequences, violence and gore.
  5. TBA.
