    Um trabalho marcante do ator Sam Riley, ele soube captar bem a essência de Ian Curtis, o preto e branco foi uma escolha mais do que acertada e as músicas do Joy Division escolhidas para ilustrar o filme foram corretas também, uma pena um artista que tinha um potencial enorme tenha nos deixado de forma tão triste, uma pena!

    This is a great film. I do feel at moments like Sam Riley is the real Ian and that he has come back for a brief moment in time to walk us through what he felt.
    Apart from that, I feel it lacks on some things. The film doesn't really shine a light to the causes of his depression, of course the women in his life and his epilepsy had to do with it, but I do not feel it…

    An interesting account of a brief period in the life of Ian Curtis, that was a somber glimpse into his personal struggle, that unfortunately never quite dug deep enough to allow a complete understanding of his turmoil. That being said however, this surface scratching depiction in a strange way mirrors the many unknowns of mental illness and evidently the lack of closure and satisfactory answers that are left in the wake of suicide. As a Joy Devision fan, I would have appreciated a bit of insight into the history of the band itself, but I understand the desire to focus on Ian exclusively.

    Existence. Well, what does it matter? I exist on the best terms I can. The past is now part of my future. The present is well out of hand.
    -Ian Curtis

    I had a few options for a January 8th Birthday pick when I came across Sam Riley who I had only seen in two films so far. Unfortunately one of them was Maleficent, but I did remember him from the film so that counted for something right? Maybe. I…

    I've watched Control before and it's still as great as the last time.

    From the use of black and white, Sam Riley's portrayal of Ian Curtis, the awesome music and to Anton Corbijn's direction, everything is beautiful.

    Because I love Corbijn's music videos and Joy Division (though I admit to being a much bigger New Order fan), I had high hopes for this -- mostly dashed. While very stylish and well-acted, and of course stuffed with glorious music, it doesn't really illuminate anything -- dramatizing scenes we're all familiar with from reading histories of Curtis and the band. If you have an infatuation with the Factory era, you'll at least eat up the period flavor, but you…

    The right man for the job, Anton Corbijn, documents the sad, short life of Joy Division and Ian Curtis, who may or may not have become suicidal because of the "try it and see" approach to his epilepsy meds from doctors. (Or perhaps the depression was there all along). The film finely balances the mundane life of the band, Curtis' relationship with both wife and mistress, and the grim life in Manchester with the otherworldly, transcendant music of Joy Division,…
