Pink Floyd The Wall (1982) - (Pink Floyd) US one-sheet
This is a US one-sheet poster derived from one of the animated sequences in the 1982 Alan Parker Film Pink Floyd The Wall, screenplay by Roger Waters and starring Bob Geldof as Pink. This is a psychedelic horror musical rich in symbolic imagery with songs, animation by Gerald Scarfe and minimal dialogue. Plot summary: Pink is a rock star who has gotten into a depressed and detached state. His father was killed in the fighting at the Anzio Bridgehead during his infancy; Pink has always longed for a father and has a bad relationship with an overprotective mother. As a rock performer he has bad relationships with women and fantasizes himself as a neo-Nazi. The titular wall is a metaphorical device Pink has built around himself; it represents the wall of alienation between Pink Floyd and their fans.
