"Roger Waters The Wall" is a concert film and documentary directed by Sean Evans and Roger Waters, who is one of the founding members of the legendary rock group Pink Floyd. The movie features a live performance of Pink Floyd's iconic album "The Wall," as well as footage of Waters traveling to Europe and revisiting his own personal history and the themes behind the music.

The film opens with Waters touring an empty stadium that he will be performing the "The Wall" in front of. As he walks through the people-less corridors, he contemplates about the isolation and separation that inspired the album. The performance then begins and takes the audience on a breathtaking journey of sound and visuals, creating an unforgettable sensory experience.

The concert itself is a masterpiece, with musical numbers that include classic hit songs such as "Another Brick in the Wall" and "Comfortably Numb," and yet more obscure tracks like "The Gunner's Dream." Roger Waters is in top form vocally and his band is phenomenal, featuring Dave Kilminster and Snowy White on guitars.

The visuals of the show are stunning and breathtaking, with an enormous wall being built brick by brick as the show progresses, and projections of animations and videos that range from children's cartoons to haunting and disturbing images. The animation is beautifully hand-drawn and blends seamlessly with the rest of the visuals.

Aside from the concert, "Roger Waters The Wall" is also a journey into Waters' personal history, and the events that inspired the creation of "The Wall." Throughout the film, he travels to different locations that played a significant role in his life, including his childhood home and his grandfather's grave. Through interviews with his family and childhood friends, he talks about his father's death in World War II, and his longing for a connection with him.

As the film progresses, the personal narrative merges with the themes of "The Wall" itself - isolation, detachment, and a yearning for human connection. These themes are exemplified by the wall that is constructed on stage throughout the show, a physical barrier separating the performers from the audience, and the iconic image of the wall falling at the end of the performance.

Overall, "Roger Waters The Wall" is an outstanding concert film that is both stunning and deeply personal. The show is a must-see for any Pink Floyd or Roger Waters fan, and the accompanying story is incredibly touching and thought-provoking. The visuals and music are truly spectacular, and the film is a moving tribute to the man responsible for some of the greatest rock music of all time.

Roger Waters The Wall is a 2015 documentary with a runtime of 2 hours and 13 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 8.5.
