A bit same here, it's only since 6 years or so that I've been listening to any other albums from Pink Floyd, yet I've watched The wall when it was released on VHS in France, around 1983. In fact, for many years I thought that "The wall" from Pink Floyd was the OST from the movie ! Especially because inside the 33 rpm you could see many drawings from Gerald Scarfe looking like those seen in the movie. I was 12 or 13 in 1983, when I first saw it on this VHS, and it absolutely fascinated me. Almost every thursday afternoon when I was alone at home because I was freed early from school, I sneaked into my parents tapes and watched this movie. I kept that hidden because I felt there was something pornographic-like in the movie, more in the "horror" sense, especially the scene where Pink tears his skin and there are inserts of worms. I mean, I was really feeling this movie was not for my age, nonetheless I was totally in love with it. Since that first time, I must have seen it at least 25 times, no exageration ; and I've just watched once more tonight !
