Pink Floyd The Wall

Whether you see it as one of the boldest attempts to express a single songwriter's alienated psyche or just some bitter asshole complaining, The Wall is an undeniably striking and affecting ride into the deteriorating mind of Roger Waters's alter ego. Though it's tough to feel empathy for Bob Geldof's fish-white portrayal of the emotionally drained Pink, it's pretty easy to get lost in the psychotically stirring imagery director Alan Parker and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe cook up for the senses. The past and present documentaries should satiate aficionados but will probably leave everyone else feeling cold. (SMV)
