"Do you think they'll drop the Bomb?" asks a loaded musical question at one irresistibly funny point. Obviously, they've already dropped it, and it's called "The Wall."

Visually stunning and disturbing, an essential midnight movie.

Visually stunning yet strangely forced tale.

Derek Malcolm

Parker's visual synthesis with the music, much aided by Scarfe's rip-roaring visions of doom and destruction which turn light into darkness at the flick of a pen rather than a switch, is almost perfect.

A stunning portrayal of a slide from isolation into madness. And the music rocks, too--bonus.

Karina Montgomery

dated and self-aggrandizing but a watershed

Nothing is put together for you, but all the pieces of the puzzle are there for you to create what you want. It's refreshing to see a movie that is completely out of the box, and doesn't follow any present forumla. THE WALL is a great rock opera.

The story of a depressed, self-loathing rock star, told as a long, grandiose, surrealistic movie video. Roger Waters lyrics for "The Wall" are whiny,… More

This film, like the album it is based on, is a masterpiece, but it's a masterpiece I don't want to revisit very often. Loaded with tons of symbolism… More
