Technical Sound System Set Up Guide
By any rational measure, Alan Parker's cinematic interpretation of Pink Floyd's The Wall is a glorious failure. Glorious because its imagery is hypnotically striking, frequently resonant and superbly photographed by the gifted cinematographer Peter Biziou. And a failure because the entire exercise is hopelessly dour, loyal to the bleak themes and psychological torment of Roger Waters' great musical opus, and yet utterly devoid of the humour that Waters certainly found in his own material. Any attempt to visualise The Wall would be fraught with artistic danger, and Parker succumbs to his own self-importance, creating a film that's as fascinating as it is flawed. The film is, for better and worse, the fruit of three artists in conflict--Parker indulging himself, and Waters in league with designer Gerald Scarfe, whose brilliant animated sequences suggest that he should have directed and animated this film in its entirety. Fortunately, this clash of talent and ego does not prevent The Wall from being a mesmerising film. Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof (in his screen debut) is a fine choice to play Waters's alter ego--an alienated, "comfortably numb" rock star whose psychosis manifests itself as an emotional (and symbolically physical) wall between himself and the cold, cruel world. Weaving Waters's autobiographical details into his own jumbled vision, Parker ultimately fails to combine a narrative thread with experimental structure. It's a rich, bizarre, and often astonishing film that will continue to draw a following, but the real source of genius remains the music of Roger Waters. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product Description

It's just how The Wall was meant to be watched - but the technology didn't exist to do it justice. But with the advent of home cinema systems this DVD just brings the film to life.
What tops it all off for me are the special features included on the disc - which are so numerous it puts other DVD's to shame. Documentaries, music videos, unreleased footage of the film, interviews, trailers, sound set-up sections - it's got it all.
If you've got The Wall on video and can't see the point in upgrading - ignore those voices and buy this DVD! The transformation from VHS to DVD really is amazing.
Apparently because Roger Waters thought it would be too hard for him to act out his own fictionalised breakdown (fair enough), it stars Bob Geldof, who plays the part surprisingly well.
It has been regarded as an alegory against totalitarianism and there are strong neofascist scenes which, although portraying the movement in the poor light most would think it deserves, are more intended as a metaphor for the relationship between the central character and his fans, coloured by the fact that "Pink" lost his father during WWII.
Scarfes brilliant animations are breathtaking, frightening and disturbing, as befits a portayal of psychotic hallucinations.
The remastering work is to be praised: there is no degradation of image as can be seen sometimes on movies with a DVD release some twenty plus yeas after thier cinema release. The picture is crisp and due to the almost timeless nature of the storyline it looks like it could have been released this year for the first time. The quality of the soundtrack is likewise excellent.
The bonus features are interesting and there is a commentary by Waters and Scarfe which can be run alongside the film.
I have seen this film many times, and now I have it looking and sounding as crisp and new looking as it did in 1982, I shall see it many more times.
You don't need to be a fan of the album to enjoy this, but it helps.
I found the album difficult to understand when it was first released, but it became much clearer when I saw the show in London and finally it all comes together brilliantly with this film. Wonderful visual interpretations and additional tracks to better link the storyline, this is a masterpiece.
This DVD version improves the whole experience again. There are clear improvements in the quality of the picture and the sound track and there are plenty of extras to keep the fans happy.
Pink Floyd have always been self indulgent and Roger Waters has an ego that needs careful handling (something that the excellent director Alan Parker found out a bit too late) and some of the extras are therefore only for die hard fans.
This is an excellent film that has been given another boost. If you liked it on video then buy the DVD - you'll love it.
There are so many details and possible interpretations in this film that it is not enough to just watch it once. After ten times, you will still discover new aspects of this historical piece of art. And every single time you watch it, you will still be amazed.
It is simply unique. See it!

Six years after 'Dark Side of the Moon' made them famous. Supposedly the same four-man music line-up. In fact the list of supporting musicians and sound-makers is very long. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Rerevisionist
