Isn't this where we came in?

A fantastic commentary by Roger Waters and Gerald Scarfe that details memories about the production, reveals insights about the complex film itself, and makes you laugh out loud at points. Certainly entertaining and informative, this commentary is a must for any fan of Pink Floyd.

Waters and Scarfe run out of things to say before the film's end, and there's quite a lot of silent passages where they've obviously become so interested in watching the film and listening to the music that they've forgotten to comment, but it's still well worth a listen. It's nice to hear a couple of laid-back voices amid the intensity going on onscreen, and Waters points out just how much of the film was autobiographical (or biographical, as he points out which parts refer to ex-Floyd guitarist Syd Barrett, who became schizoid). Their easygoing banter ranges from funny moments (Waters imitating Geldof: "I hate feckin' Pink Floyd") to sociological issues. However poor old Alan Parker gets the cold shoulder as neither of them spare a comment on how well he directed the movie (it's established quickly on that they didn't get along).

One of my favourite commentaries, where the filmmakers let loose and give their uncensored opinions about the film and the production. Roger Waters is in rare form as he gives an unvarnished view of things.
