    That double album was great for cleaning seeds out of my weed back in the day.

    Sadly, you are correct.

    Most of it is lost on casual fans.

    The movie is hardly indicative of the political content of the album or live shows.

    I don't think Waters and Alan Parker were doing anything other than showing Pink's disillusion with stardom and his lost humanity.

    Untrue , bob gild offs part is rather small ; what's more is the imagery of walking hammers and scenes of revolution

    All very minor to that version, compared to the album and live show.

    I have seen it live twice, and the majority of the presentation is about Roger's thoughts on war, greed etc...

    Just an idea , I suspect that the conceptual tone of the album would be appreciated more by the UK audience as they were under nazi threat for a decade . Not being from there , but that must be formative in it's culture .
