Captivating their audiences every time, Off The Wall faithfully recreate the classic and timeless music of Pink Floyd enhanced by a stunning visual and lighting show.

Pink Floyd 's The Wall is a splendidly engrossing, self-indulgent rock & roll movie. Based on Pink Floyd 's monumental 1979 masterpiece The Wall , director Alan Parker and animator Gerald Scarfe took Roger Waters ' semi-autobiographical tale of Pink, a burned-out rock star who descends into alienation and madness, and turned it into a "midnight movie" cult favorite. A "feel-good movie" it is not, but Waters isn't known for thematic subtlety. The Boomtown Rats ' Bob Geldof stars as Pink, and we watch as he silently reflects on his father's death in World War II, his school days, his crumbling marriage, and his status as a fascist leader. The symbolism inherent in Waters ' concept, Parker's fine direction, and Scarfe 's breathtaking animation is so strong it often bludgeons viewers, but it works. Two of Scarfe 's sequences in particular are stunning: "Goodbye Blue Sky" shows the Union Jack dissolve into a bloody cross as the blood runs down a drain; tense sexuality and misogyny illustrate "Empty Spaces" through copulating, human-like "flowers" (giving Freudian scholars much to chew on). Parker ends the film on a gently hopeful note when children literally clean up and rebuild a bombed-out city. The 1999 DVD edition of The Wall is fantastic. The widescreen film transfer itself is crisp and vivid, the remastered soundtrack rumbles, and the "extras" are practically endless. Two documentaries -- a 25-minute behind-the-scenes piece, and a 45-minute segment featuring insightful interviews with Waters , Parker, Scarfe , and others -- are included. Previously unreleased footage intended to accompany "Hey You" is highlighted, as well as the rarely seen "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" music video. Other bonuses include running commentary from Waters and Scarfe , the original film trailer, production photos, and animation stills.

One of the FM stations I worked at in Los Angeles back in the day had a copy of this beauty. Currently, it is one of the better Pink Floyd vinyl rarities out there. Expect to spend $100-$200 USD or more when you find one.
