Roger Waters The Wall Movie Review

Title: Roger Waters The Wall

Director: Roger Waters, Sean Evans

Starring: Roger Waters, Dave Kilminster, Snowy White, G.E. Smith, Jon Carin, Kipp Lennon, Mark Lennon, Pat LEnnon, Jon Joyce, Robbie Wycoff and Graham Broad.

Genre: Documentary

The cinematic homage to the legendary 1979 Pink Floyd album, ‘The Wall’, intertwines Roger Waters’ 219 concerts (between 2010-2013), with his own personal voyage of the inner wall he had to break through. The British lead of Pink Floyd hits the road through Europe, from the UK to Italy, to reach the memorial of his father in Anzio, where the man died during World War II.

‘Roger Waters The Wall’ is enthralling both for the simple narrative and the mind-gobbling visual effects of the rock concerts of the band, featuring animations, giant puppets overlooking the cheering audiences, and the most famous bricks in history, building the war of fear, ready to be demolished.

This incredible journey unfolds on many levels, with the immersive concert experience, that enhances the war experience through the course of time . Every image resonates strongly today, just as it did in the years of the Sino-Vietnamese War.

The road movie of Waters’ is an extraordinary odyssey that allows every spectator to reckon with the past, by living collectively a stirring anti-war event, that highlights the human cost of conflict. Just as exceptional are the premise given by Liam Neeson, who expresses appreciation for Waters’ personal voyage, and the final chit chat that occurs betwixt Roger and his bandmate Nick, who reunited, answer unscripted the questions submitted by the fans from around the world.

Don’t miss this monumental event where music and personal passion collide.
