I really like Roger Waters' vision of totalitarian hate and the pathology of the ultimate rock star. The film is just so eerie. I couldn't help but be reminded of the film when I read today of Syd Barrett, who showed up to the studio session of Wish You Were Here's "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" with shaved eyebrows. In the film, Pink shaving his eyebrows is a sign of his step to madness and paranoia. I'm reconsidering my devoted trichotillomania.
