This might already be a post, but I couldnt find one in "Search" so if this is, could I have the link to the actual one please? Anyways.......


I recently watched the movie, The Wall by Pink Floyd and it was possibly one of the wierdest movies I have ever watched.


Have any of you guys ever watched it and if you have what were your opinions on it?


Thanks,
Tyler

I haven't seen the movie, but The Wall is the greatest album of all time. No questions asked.

Yeah I've seen it. Weirdest film ever. It's really good though. I might have to watch it again.

Epiphone Les Paul ES,

Laney VC15,
Some pedals,
Some recording gear.

I don't know any people who like the movie but hate the album, so I guess that it would be wise to listen to the record 4 or 5 times before watching the movie again. It worked for me: one time I was riding home on my bike with my iPod on and the moment David Gilmour's solo from the live version of Comfortably Numb came on I went nuts. From that point on I loved the movie too, but I still prefer the audio from the live version of the Wall. It's called Is There Anybody In There and I just don't understand why they haven't released that stuff on DVD...

I love the opening track "When the Tigers Broke Free" it's not on the album though, waa.

Awesome film though, one of my favorites.

And I mean that in the best possible way.

Yeah I thought I was on acid watching that movie.


It was the greatest movie ever but it was just crazy!!!


The night after I watched it, my dreams were so off the wall.

I dreamed that I was in a school in Germany and that bombs were being dropped all around us as the teacher was teaching. Then I ran down the hall and the classroom I was just in blew up as I turned around. It was so wierd and real and I woke up screaming hahah it was crazy.

Did anything like that happen to you guys?
#13
I dismissed it as too wierd.

Interesting, but kinda wierd.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.
#14
It's suprisingly good. No other album could be made a film as good as that.

The movie part was good, but the animations was when I started to think I was on drugs.

God "The Trial" was so strange.

It's great. I watched it while high, which was good, but I'd really like to experience it again in acidvision.

It's on The Final Cut, though


I Love that movie. Gerald Scarfe is an animating genius. Roger Waters is one of the greatest songwriters ever, David Gilmour > You, Rick Wright pwns, Nick Mason is underrated.

can i just say, i relate so completely to this movie. obviously i wasn't born with all the war and stuff going on, but i did lose my father very young, and i built this wall (my OCD) to shut myself off from the world. a friend gave me a copy of the album, i understood the complete message (which makes perfect sense if you look it up), but only after watching the movie did i finally see the true meaning. i just cried my eyes out as the credits rolled with the final song playing. its rodger water's warning to all to not build walls around ourselves as he had done, and to let the ones who really love us stay close to us and help us, and not shut them out. coz after all, its not easy, banging your heart against some mad buggers wall

Its only the greatest music video ever No dialogue, just visuals and music telling the story. Anyway id take this to the only pink floyd thread, its in the classic rock section of the bands and artists forum.
#27
I absolutely loved it. Could've done without all the boobs though (my mom totally flipped when she saw them )

The best thing about it though is, in the scene with the neo-nazi rally, all the people in the audience were actual skinheads, and refused to follow the director or choreographer.

Dunno how common that knowledge is though...

I also like how when they're marching through the streets theres like 10 of them, quite underwhelming.

But in the scene where they attack the black guy in the back of the car (duing "Run Like Hell"), they actually tried to kill him.

A lot of it scared me to death when I was high, especially when the wall explodes at the end.


It was about 4.30 in the morning, pitch black and I had big headphones on.

"AAAAAAHHHHHHH SHHHHHHIT!"

I've seen bits and pieces of it, I need to find it somewhere so I can watch it all the way through.

Funfact: Chobes was listening to The Trial while reading this thread.
#38
great movie, you have to really find the symbolism of the movie to really understand it. search Pink Floyd the Wall analysis on google, and it will make a lot more sense if you're confused. I do prefer listening to Is there anybody out there over the original album though, it's just cooler live
#40
Amazing movie. The symbolic imagery is just awesome. A true analysys of the human psyche.
