7. 'Pink Floyd – The Wall'
Pink Floyd's 1979 double LP about a rock star whose childhood demons drive him insane seemed custom made for the big screen, though director Alex Parker didn't exactly make a traditional film out of it. Casting Bob Geldof of the Boomtown Rats as the rock star Pink, he made the movie a surreal, psychedelic experience punctuated by animated sequences. Critics were impressed, but it took audiences a little while to catch on, though it soon became a favorite of stoned high school kids all across America.
