Pink Floyd – The Wall is a 1982 British live-action/animated psychological horror musical film directed by Alan Parker and animated scenes by political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, and is based on the 1979 Pink Floyd album of the same name. The film centers around a confined rocker, named Floyd "Pink" Pinkerton, who after is driven into insanity by the death of his father and many depressive moments, constructs a metaphorical and sometimes physical wall to be protected from the world and emotional situations around him, but soon backfires and demands himself free. The screenplay was written by former Pink Floyd vocalist and bassist Roger Waters.
Like its musical companion, the film is highly metaphorical and symbolic imagery and sound are present most commonly. However, the film is mostly driven by music, and does not feature much dialogue.
