Pink Floyd - The Wall [DVD] [1982]
Il film non ha una vera e propria trama poiché è tutto una serie di immagini e visioni ispirate dalle parole delle canzoni dei Pink Floyd (LP 1979 dal titolo omonimo The Wall). Il protagonista Pink (il bravo Bob Geldof al suo esordio cinematografico) è un famoso cantante rock tossicodipendente, idolatrato dai suoi fans e manipolato abilmente dai suoi manager. In attesa di esibirsi sul palcoscenico si chiude in una stanza d'albergo davanti ad un televisore che trasmette film di guerra e che stimola Pink a ripensare alla sua vita. Ritorna al pensiero della sua infanzia triste priva del padre morto in guerra, vittima di una madre possessiva, di una scuola autoritaria con insegnanti sadici, ripensa alle rivoluzioni del '68, alla violenza della repressione poliziesca, alla scelta della donna e del matrimonio fallito, agli odiati fans che lo amano ma che lo schiavizzano. Una vita che scorre nella mente del protagonista attraverso una serie di flash-back tratti da una realtà vera e propria ma sempre ossessiva e alienante oppure resi tramite cartoni animati mostruosi e allucinanti.

Midnight Express (30th Anniversary Edition) [DVD] [2008]

Forever embroiled in controversy, Midnight Express divides viewers into opposing camps: those who think it's one of the most intense real-life dramas ever made, and those who loathe its manipulative tactics and alteration of facts for the exploitative purpose of achieving a desired effect. That effect is powerfully achieved, regardless of how you may feel about director Alan Parker and Oscar®-winning screenwriter Oliver Stone's interpretation of the story of Billy Hayes. It was the American Hayes--played by the late Brad Davis in an unforgettable performance--who was caught smuggling two kilograms of hashish while attempting to board a flight from Istanbul, Turkey, in 1970. He was sentenced to four years in a hellish Turkish prison on a drug possession charge, but his sentence was later extended (though not by 30 years, as the film suggests), and Hayes endured unthinkable brutality and torture before his escape in 1975.

Unquestionably, this is a superbly crafted film, provoking a visceral response that's powerful enough to boil your blood. By the time Hayes erupts in an explosion of self-defensive violence, Parker and Stone have proven the power--and danger--of their skill. Their film is deeply manipulative, extremely xenophobic, and embellishes reality to heighten its calculated impact. Is that a crime? Not necessarily, and there's no doubt that Midnight Express is expertly directed and blessed with exceptional supporting performances (especially from John Hurt as a long-term prisoner). Still, it's obvious that strings are being pulled, and Parker, while applying his talent to a nefarious purpose, is a masterful puppeteer. --Jeff Shannon
