Three years after its LP release, Pink Floyd's best-selling rock opera was adapted into a visually and sonically overwhelming film starring Bob Geldof as Pink, a burned out rock star holed up in a Los Angeles hotel. He reminisces about the often traumatic events that shaped his life, from his wartime birth to his present circumstances. The film contains no dialogue; rather, the narrative is carried by the Pink Floyd soundtrack and extravagant Gerald Scarfe animation sequences. Bob Hoskins co-stars. Directed by Alan Parker (The Commitments, Angel Heart).
