SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Metal / Heavy / RPI / Symph Prog Team
4 stars This concert film is not only appealing because of the music of "The Wall" presented by Roger Waters and his band, but because of the story behind the stage. The story reveals the anti-war message and the movie offer to the viewer other surroundings than the actual stage. But don't worry, we have the complete show here. The fact that it was not only a concert made me appreciate more the music of "The Wall" which has never been my favorite Pink Floyd album. The visuals are spectacular in this super production with the big wall, the lights mainly in the red color and the projections on the screen. The musicians are almost out of the picture, except Roger. The surround "atmospheric" sound place you in the show. And on top of that, you can watch this in plenty of languages choices with the subtitles, while this is more important in the extras with the documentary. In the extras, you can see David Gilmour played "Comfortably Numb" on top of the wall. My favorite parts of the show are the atmospheric songs outside the typical rock songs of the "Another Brick in The Wall" suite. The story behind the concept of "The Wall" is beyond the simple anti-war message, but is also based on the concept of alienation that humans fear in their lives in general. The idea of Roger Waters to dedicated this show to the people who have died in the war is really touching considering the fact that his father and grandfather died in this situation so that his universal message of peace has a personal resonance on him. Recommended not only to music listeners, but also those who enjoy a good musical movie.

2 stars This movie has been available on Netflix for a while. It's part documentary, part live registration of The Wall (recorded between 2010-2013). The opening of the movie was exemplary for what was to come. Music by Roger Waters. Script by Waters. After an idea by Waters. Starring Roger Waters as Roger Waters. The cinematography of the documentary is great, but the idea is artistically corrupt. Old men chatting about, saying things that mean nothing, speaking as if it's a great revelation that comes with old age. In one scripted scene Waters sits at a dark lit bar in France with a French bartender who doesn't speak English. But he wants to tell the story of how his father died in the war anyway (in English). Roger Waters wants to tell his deep story no matter if it relevant/welcome or not.

This reflects back on the live footage of the complete The Wall record. The story has lost its relevance since WO II is more then halve a century ago. Schools have become child friendly. Drugs are known to be dangerous. People get help with their depressions. Communism and Fascism are dead. The Berlin Wall fell thirty years ago. Confusion has been replaced by a bitter understanding of reality or a flight to digital fantasy worlds. The original critique of his generation has actually changed society for the better - destroying its initial power. However, the Wall is still a work potent of a long list of classic symphonic rock songs. Yet Roger Waters has chosen to focus on an impressive show full of dated symbols. Yet again hiding the band behind a meaningless (personal) wall he has failed to tear down all his life. A plain crashing with special effects, brilliant visual material portrayed on the set and a stage full of dummy soldiers. The music sounds worn out, not even that well recorded, as if played by tired people. The average tempo of the songs is much slower then the original and extra instrumental passages add to the feeling of drag. If you would listen to a David Gilmour dvd next (choose any) you'd hear the Pink Floyd legacy played with way more fresh energy and atmosphere.

I could not recommend this film to any-one other than the hardcore fans of Roger Waters. Preferably people who have lived under a pile of bricks themselves for the past four decades.

4 stars After Alan Parker's film and the Berlin political show, what can Roger Waters do to excite us, Pink Floyd veterans? well, it seems that quite a bit. First, the visual presentation is absolutely stunning: Waters uses cutting-edge 3D projection techonology to transform the huge wall into a virtual ... (read more)
