Written by Floyd front man Roger Waters and directed by Alan Parker, the film is rich with metaphor and symbolism which creates a twisted storyline driven entirely by music. Bob Geldoff plays main character, Pink, a young boy who struggles with an isolated childhood after suffering with losing his father.
The Wall explores the imaginary barrier created by Pink, used as a coping mechanism for his suffering that protects him from being hurt by the big, wide world.
The controversial film now has a well-established cult following who praise its surrealism, and gore for ultimately creating a much deeper, politically-charged work.
These rare, behind-the-scene photos pretty much summarise some of weirdness you can expect from the film, which ultimately conveys the message that isolation is not the answer.
