The album was later adapted into a 1982 feature film entitled ''Pink Floyd - The Wall'', directed by Alan Parker and featuring Irish musician Bob Geldof as Pink. It set the music and story of Pink to horrific scenes that shifted from live-action to the aforementioned animation by Scarfe. Most memorable were the animated scenes of [[ItMakesSenseInContext marching hammers]] and nightmarish blitz-era London, as well as the film's stunning climax. Scarfe drew upon his bedridden childhood to come up with the grotesque imagery featured prominently in the concerts and film.

* LoopedLyrics: "Is There Anybody Out There?" simply repeats its title four times, before going into its lonely guitar piece.

After all, it's not easy, banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall.\\

* TheChainOfHarm: The teacher, being a HenpeckedHusband, takes out his frustration on his pupils. Made all the more literal in the movie version of "The Trial", where when the teacher is shown whipping Pink, while his wife is shown whipping him.

* BlackComedy: Several of the lyrics show an understated, deadpan sense of humour that either provides momentary relief from or reinforces the album's depressing atmosphere, such as "Mother will they try to break my balls?" from "Mother", Pink gleefully recounting how the abusive teachers are thrashed "within inches of their lives" every night by their "fat and psychopathic wives" in "The Happiest Days Of Our Lives", Pink's pathetic list of possessions in "Nobody Home", the "little pinprick" in "Comfortably Numb", Pink psychotically ranting about shooting his fans in "In The Flesh", and nearly all of "The Trial".

Added DiffLines:

* SavingTheWorldWithArt: The ultimate moral of the story, as told in "Outside The Wall."
-->Some hand in hand, some gathered together in bands\\
''The bleeding hearts and artists'' make their stand\\
But when they've given you their all, some stagger and fall\\
After all, it's not easy, banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall.\\


Added DiffLines:

* StylisticSuck: "Young Lust," "In the Flesh (Part II)," and "Run Like Hell." They're all songs that Pink himself is performing at concerts.
