The Austin Chronicle

Pink Floyd: The Wall

Rated R, 99 min. Directed by Alan Parker. Starring Bob Geldof, Christine Hargreaves, Bob Hoskins, James Laurenson, Eleanor David.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., Jan. 20, 2000

This visualization of the rock group’s bestselling concept album is a wall of sound and images. The story is about the crack-up of a burnt-out rock star. The film’s animation is by Gerald Scarfe. Director Parker would go on to satisfy his musical penchants with such films as The Commitments and Evita.
