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.
"Side effects include: drowsiness, apathy, and blurred vision... I'm taking two."
Yes, fucking, please!
Odd to use the word 'enjoy' when describing this film but I will. I enjoyed watching this. Anton Corbijn's black and white photography making the story all that more powerful. Bleak, depressing, desolate, cold, and loney; these are words to describe both the look and content of the film.
Even if you are not a Joy Division fan, you might already be familiar with their story from 2002's 24 Party People. In that film, you get an overview of their beginning and eventual rebirth as New Order. In Control, you get the more personal view of Ian Curtis.
The performances by all the actors, including Samantha…
In Anton Corbjin's Control we have the chance to see the world through the eyes of Ian Curtis, the vocalist of the acclaimed british band from the late 70s, Joy Division, which is actually one of my all time favorite bands. Control documents the relationship bewtween Ian Curtis and his wife and between Ian Curtis and his mistress, his battle against epilepsy and the path to Joy Division's fame and the way all those happenings destroyed his life.
Control was directed by the acclaimed photgrapher Anton Corbjin, and you can immediately see he knows how to elaborate a visually stunning film. Beautifully shot in black and white, this film is a major directional achievement, from the ingenious use of light…
Anton Corbijn has a flair for visuals. Anyone who has seen his work with Depeche Mode will know what I mean. He's made that step from brilliant photographer to film director with consummate ease and this his debut feature had all his hallmarks.
Ian Curtis was the lead singer with the late-seventies band Joy Division. A complex, some would say selfish young man, he had deeply troubling emotional problems courtesy of an epilepsy condition he just couldn't deal with. This biopic paints an unhappy man who struggles to deal with depression and the big decisions he made that cornered him. Marrying his childhood sweetheart at 19 and a father by 22, he threw himself into the band after problems with…
The colour scheme is fuckin' black & white, and they fuckin' speak as if there's a golden shite. The fuckin' movies are all overblown, the fuckin' powers and all those fuckin' guns. The fuckin' people are fuckin' stupid, they fuckin' talk as if they know it.
The fuckin' music is fuckin' fucked, what sadness can give, not a fuckin' thing could. The fuckin' love is fuckin' unreal, with all the fuckin' dance and all them fuckin' seals.
The fuckin' cigarette is not going to fuckin' help, coz' them love-birds are going to yelp. Though the fuckin' music stays alive, through the fuckin' rope and through the fuckin' blue eyes.

Review In A Nutshell:
I don't consider myself as the biggest Joy Division enthusiast, but I can proudly say that I do love their music and I consider myself at least a fan of their work. The band has made an impact on my life and my perspective of music. I remember when around 5-6 years ago, when I first heard the band, I listened to Unknown Pleasures, it didn't instantly blow me away instead it crept up on me as I kept coming back to it. It was songs like She's Lost Control and Disorder that truly hit me in the heart and convinced me that they are…
I got an unknown amount of pleasure watching this
"Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man?"
Ian Curtis ♡
"Then love, love will tear us apart again."
De los mejores biopics que he visto.
It's beautiful melancholy biopic movie. About a boy, his dream, love and mistakes that we normaly do when we're on our way to catch our dream. And sometimes love can make people uncontrol, dreams too. But whatever happen, it just need to happen. I like the movie, i can feel it when i watch it. Well, i have to say Sam Riley is a perfect Curtis.
Sam Riley was the perfect choice to play Ian Curtis. One of the best musician biopics I've ever seen.
Control is as kinetic yet brooding as Joy Divisions very own music.
It may not be an accurate biopic, but it is still the best movie about music or musicians I have ever seen.
Gran bel biopic dall`animo punk.
Deep down the thought and misfortunes of this chaotic mind.
Music of course joyable.
Still don't know why it felt so suiting to watch this.
I guess is just the dramatic tone... it has a certain melancholy that goes perfectly with it.
Got me ...
black and white in its best
