SEDEU, Ricardo de Lima. Pink Floyd - The Wall: a process of “psychotization”. Estud. psicanal. [online]. 2013, n.39, pp.93-105. ISSN 0100-3437.

In this paper, we analyze Pink, main character of the movie “Pink Floyd - The Wall”, from the psychoanalytic viewpoint. Comments are made about some of the songs that make up the movie, describing what happens in Pink’s internal world and the path taken by him towards psychosis. Throughout the paper, we present some psychoanalytic concepts considered important for understanding the case.

Keywords : Melancholia; Borderline conditions; Psychic retreats; Projective identification; Psychotic and non-psychotic parts of personality.
