Pink Floyd THE WALL

GENRE: Musical
YEAR: 1982

      Alan Parker brings to the screen Pink Floyd’s awesome and twisted rock opera with great success. Typical description of THE WALL ranges from “really weird” to “really f**ked up.” All apply! Bob Geldof is a used up rock star named, Pink, whose slow descent into madness is the theme of the film. Pink’s madness is further illustrated with flashbacks of his life, from a baby in the crib to his present. Thrown into the mix are strange animations and a metamorphosis of Pink into some type of Nazi dictator.

      I am by no means a proponent of drugs, but if you really want to get “weirded” out one night, rent this. Believe me, you won’t need an illegal substance to enjoy it.
