Pink Floyd: The Wall was a live action/animated musical film released in 1982.  The film was based on Pink Floyd’s 1979 album, with the screenplay written by Pink Floyd’s bassist, Roger Waters.  The film received mostly positive reviews, with both Siskel and Ebert promoting the film.  The film was a profitable at the box office, ultimately ranking number 3 at the box office. 

The movie has very little dialogue, and is essentially metaphorical in nature.  The film’s main character is Floyd “Pink” Pinkerton (played by Bob Geldof), is a rock star prone to bouts of depression.  The movie starts out with Pink in a hotel room that he has destroyed, reflecting back on his English childhood in the 1950’s.  Pink longs for a father in his life (his father died as a soldier in World War II) and to break away from his over protective mother.  In later years, Pink gets married, but his marriage falls apart when he discovers his wife is not faithful.  The emotional baggage of it all is too much for Pink, and he begins to go crazy as “worms” take over his mind.

After shaving his head and devolving into a neo-fascist, the band’s manager injects Pink with some drugs in order to enable him to perform a show.  The drugs cause him to have strong hallucinations, and he visualizes that he is the dictator at a neo-nazi rally.  In the end, Pink is put on trial in order to “tear down the wall”, and it does get torn down.  The film ends with children cleaning up debris from a real life riot event.
