ABOUT:

PINK FLOYD – THE WALL, based on the 1979 Pink Floyd album of the same name, is a 1982 British film directed by Alan Parker. The film centers around a rocker named Pink, who is burned out from the music business and only able to perform on stage with the help of drugs. After being driven into insanity by the death of his father and many depressive moments during his lifetime, he slowly constructs a metaphorical (and sometimes physical) wall around himself as protection from the world and emotional situations. When this coping mechanism backfires he puts himself on trial and sets himself free. The screenplay was written by Pink Floyd vocalist and bassist Roger Waters. Like its musical companion, the film is highly metaphorical and symbolic imagery and sound abound.
