Great memories of seeing this film in 70MM Dolby Stereo Six track on the giant panoramic screen at the Kinopanorama.
Merci Mr. Ouvrard.
The animation sequences in here are a MUST SEE. They're INCREDIBLY WELL DONE and just overall spectacular. The rest of the movie, however...it was fine.
This is symbolism in cinema at its purest and most poignant. It serves as a stark and frightening demonstration of fame gone bad and shows us that money, sex, fame, and adoration do NOT equate to happiness. That aside, the picture displays an almost unrivaled blend of mixed media storytelling to tell a single narrative. It demonstrates a creativity and range almost exclusively seen by only anthology and animated pictures to this point. Combing cel animation, inventive makeup, German expressionism, surrealism and even combining cel animation with live action years before it was perfected in Who Framed Roger Rabbit to craft one of the most under appreciated pictures in cinematic history. This, whither you like it or not, has an influence that cannot be understated.
Pairing Pink Floyd's mesmerizing rock album with imaginative visuals and an abstract but still cohesive narrative, The Wall sets itself apart from the other bricks in the wall.
A really damn good visual companion to a beloved album, Pink Floyd - The Wall is a truly surreal experience with great music, insane animated sequences and provocative images. It's sometimes overambitious but it is an experience that has to be seen to be believed.
"All in all, you're just another brick in the wall."
"Pink Floyd: The Wall", a compelling visual journey of the disturbed and tragic mind. It is one long music video, which is not really a negative, not with this movie.
I don't listen to a lot of Pink Floyd's music, so watching this was quite the surreal experience, but I connected and understood the surrealness to a weird extent. I think anyone who is or is not a fan will have an interesting and unique experience. Any sort of character development comes through the music, which itself tells the whole story. This will be the closest we will ever come to examine Roger Waters mindset and feelings.
The songs themselves are not only amazing, but brilliantly expressed and unequal compared to other bands. The animated sequences that went with the songs were so remarkable it makes the songs strike an extra chord to your subconscious.
Overall rating: RIP Alan Parker. A brilliant director who took a band and adapted it into cinema.
Some interesting segments and a worthy score, yet it just doesn't blend to form something complete. Most common reaction by non-Pink Floyd fans: meh.
Top 5 movie of mine.
One of the greatest films ever made. A modern classic!
There's something great about Pink Floyd: The Wall.
