Control (2007)

Control is the biography of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis, taking his story from schoolboy days of 1973 to his suicide on the eve of the band's first American tour in 1980.


Brilliant movie over the life of Ian Curtis. Made me a Joy Division fan…

Less excellent than 24 Hour Party People, but still quite good. Apart from the bleak aesthetic, which I did appreciate, the production itself felt a little too lifeless or sparse. It is possible to have more stuff going on without killing the realism. Additionally, it was disappointing that the soundtrack was not used, in my opinion, to its full effect.

On a random note, I can't believe how well 30-something Samantha Morton pulled off looking 17!
