i live that movie every day of my life. it was like looking at a mirror when i watched it.
You're also a rock star?
But seriuosly, yes, I can also relate to the wohle psychological issue because of the childhood, etc, etc, etc...
It's a wonderful movie, one of my all time favorites.
gotta love the walking hammers
I've got the dvd of that show - I really-really love it.
I never found Pink Floyd to be great vocalists but I honestly believe they are the greatest musicians of all time. Opinions on that?
most definitely the greatest.
This movie is always a journey for me. I love it
I like it a lot, I've seen it so many times, but I never refuse when someone wants to watch it.
"If you should go skating
on the thin ice of modern life
Dragging behind you the silent reproach
of a million tear stained eyes
Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice
appears under your feet
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind
with your fear flowing out behind you
As you crawl the thin ice"
The movie is great! I like it so much more than the album alone.
Guess what, I'm a fan of the band and the album, and I never saw the movie! Isn't it pathetic?
You should see it, Laety. It's really good.
Mmm... The Wall. There's a DVD I miss (someone stole it ).
Pink Floyd is my favorite band in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD If you haven't watched The Wall, you really should. It's a fine work of art!
I plan to! Nick saw it, and he likes it, and he recommended it to me already... I just didn't get around to it yet -
when i first saw it i was dazed. i guess there's really no words to describe exactly how i felt except for " i felt infinite"
How do you understand abstract?
I havent seen that flick in years. Love it, but I aint got the disk.
So you're saying the movie has no true meaning? It's not all abstract. If you think it's all abstract, you're missing the point. It's not like Kill Bill, which has no meaning at all.
pressed_rat is right you know...the movie is abstract in it's visuals...but there is blatant comentary on everthing from Nazism (marching hammers) to conformity and mistreatment of children in private schools (brick in the wall) and the coming down of the Berlin wall...it's all just a big "wait a minute...this sucks" on life and the human condition...a true work of genius i think...
moreover it was about how people with power seem to go insane...........
too much applause.
You understand it for what it means to you, which is all anyone can do on any subject, abstract or not. God knows some simple sh**'s gone right over my head, and some abstract stuff really hit home (for example, The Wall.... Aaah, sweet sweet Pink Floyd).
Ahem... er... back to reality. There are so many different levels on which to understand that movie, I think I'm gonna pick up a new copy today (and lock it the f*** away, dammit). I always notice something I didn't notice before. Good times!!!
I love "The Wall" when I first watched it I thought it was horrible. . I was raised on "Tommy" and I had never seen "The Wall" until I was 16. . I was expecting the same type of narrative as "Tommy" and it was much more abstract. .
But I realized that "The Wall" is a painting . . that moves. Watch it in those contexts. . and you'll be lost for a good 2 hours of your life. . but you wont' want to be found
