4 stars First, I have to say that I don`t have the DVD version of this movie. But I have seen this movie 3-4 times. The first time I saw it was in a cinema in my city, during a "Movies Festival" which every year is organized in the months of November and December. In this festival, the organizers present movies which are not for the "consumers of commercial movies". The movies presented in this Festival (which is mainly organized by the Goverment`s cultural institutions) are "art movies", or "intelectual movies". So, I went to see this movie for the first time in late 1982 in a now defunct cinema which was the only one (I think so) at that time here which had stereo sound. You could hear one channel at the front and the other at the back of the cinema, giving great stereo sound. At that time I was 17 years old, I didn`t like (and I still don`t like) "The Wall" album, but after seeing this movie I was very impressed, and at last, I understood Pink Floyd`s and Roger Waters`messages, which are very good illustrated by the movie. This movie moved me in several ways, with the criticisms of several political and social problems in life, and also the criticisms to the Music Industry. I saw this movie other 2 or 3 times in a cultural TV channel of my city. It is a very good movie, a very intelligent movie. I read in a book ("Pink Floyd" , written by Miles) that Roger Waters said that the making of this movie was "the most stressful moment of my life, apart from my divorce". In fact, he had to go to holidays for a time, leaving Alan Parker alone to direct the film. Parker and Waters had some conflicts during the making of this movie, due to some different views. But I remember that in 1982 the public who went to the same cinema like me, at the end of the movie, gave to the movie a long applause. My views about the concept of "The Wall" changed, but I still prefer the movie more than the album.
