Movie Review

Control dir. Anton Corbjin — 7.0

Great B&W cinegmatography, terrific acting, and better than usual concert/musical recreations. Still, this a mostly bleak and not very informative take on the life of Ian Curtis, former singer of Joy Division, who killed himself at 23. It's hard to determine what exactly the film makers are saying is worth documenting about Curtis' life. Still, the fact that they didn't turn the film into some soft of feelgood BS or sugarcoat some of the more banal aspects of late seventies Manchester culture that spawned Factory music is a victory in itself.
