Alan Parker's best film is this 1982 film called "Pink Floyd the Wall." It is based on 1980 album by the rock band "Pink Floyd."
And like "Tommy," (the rock-opera, which became a feature film in 1975 and later into a broadway musical) the film tells the story of a rocker name "Pink" whose lifestyle, added by his troubled childhood, has led to total destruction.
Up until 1982, the darkest musical was the 1956 film "Carousel," with it's no-nosense attitude towards death. "Pink Floyd the Wall" has surpassed that with its nighmarish scenes of horror. One song "Another Brick in the Wall," has faceless children being grinded into meat by their teachers. The song goes "We don't need no education/ We don't need no thought control." Scenes like this one has made "Pink Floyd the Wall" a memorable movie experience.
Ask me what is Allen Parker's best film and ask me what the darkest musical ever made on the big screen. I'll tell you, "It's Pink Floyd the Wall!"
