    This one is going to get largely overlooked, which is a shame. If nothing else, he directed The Wall and should be remembered for that.

    Parker directed a number of notable films that I remember over the years. The Commitments was one that really stands out for me.

    Absolutely. He directed a handful of great films. The Wall probably has the most cultural clout, though.
