Jung & Film. The Wall
You are warmly invited to attend our next film evening on 26 July: The Wall (Run time: 1 hour 35 minutes).‘The Wall’ is a rock opera first produced in 1978, by the rock band Pink Floyd. It was made into a film in 1982 … a ‘biting British political caricaturist’. According to reviewer Roger Ebert it ‘is without question the best of all serious fiction films devoted to rock.’     https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-pink-floyd-the-wall-1982

In 2022 the film celebrated the 40th anniversary of its wide release in the US. Reviewer and self-proclaimed fan, Michael Cavender, finds that ‘Its themes of isolation and alienation have not been diminished by time and seem newly relevant. Anxieties about large-scale armed conflict, rising authoritarianism, and civil unrest now resonate … in a compellingly modern way. Despite long years having passed since its release, the film feels depressingly fresh and topical.’ He concludes: “The Wall weaves together some autobiographical details of Roger Waters’ life with the sad story of ex-band member (and so-called crazy diamond) Syd Barret along with Waters’ feelings about war, fame, and mental illness into a 95-minute rock and roll nightmare. Visually stunning, sonically appealing, and disturbingly still relevant, I was blown away all over again watching it recently. Despite a reportedly troubled production, the film has managed to stand the test of time.’ https://www.cinedump.com/reviews/2022/9/13/pink-floyd-the-wall-1982
