Pink Floyd: The Wall is a 1982 film based on the music contained in the 1979 album, The Wall, by the legendary rock band Pink Floyd. Pink (Bob Geldof) is a rock star increasingly caught in the grip of a deep depression. Sitting in a trashed hotel room, Pink thinks about the father that he never really knew, since he was killed during World War II. As he recollects his childhood, Pink focuses on his overbearing mother and the constant harassment he endured at the hands of his fellow schoolchildren, who scorned Pink for his artistic tendencies. Though he believes that he has recovered from his difficult childhood, it still influences Pink's life as an adult, particularly in the way that his alienation from others causes his marriage to disintegrate. Pink eventually begins to go insane, shaving off all his body hair and taking drugs that cause him to hallucinate. Ultimately, Pink faces the choice between trying to save himself or simply allowing his psychosis to take over.moreless
