“We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher, leave them kids alone.
Hey, teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all, it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all, you’re just another brick in the wall.”
Pink Floyd: The Wall
About: Pink Floyd: The Wall is a 1982 British live action/adult animated surrealism musical psychological drama film directed by Alan Parker, based on the 1979 Pink Floyd album The Wall. The screenplay was written by Pink Floyd vocalist and bassist Roger Waters. Bob Geldof plays rock star Pink, who, driven into insanity by the death of his father, constructs a physical and emotional wall to protect himself. Like the album, the film is highly metaphorical, and symbolic imagery and sound are present most commonly. The film is mostly driven by music and features little dialogue from the characters. The film is best known for its imagery of mental isolation, drug use, war, fascism, dark or disturbing animated sequences, sexual situations, violence, and gore. (WikiPedia.com)
