    World of Tomorrow Episode Two: The Burden of Other People's Thoughts

    ★★★★½

    Don Hertzfeldt does it again. And by ‘it’ I mean ‘breaks my heart.’

    ★★★

    A nice atmospheric little b-movie. I really liked the set up, and the rain effects were really well done. I haven't seen a lot of films from this era, and definitely not any horror films from the 30's but I'm looking forward to seeing more of Whale's work.

    ★★★½

    I have been wanting to watch this for a while since I love Joy Division and the photography of Anton Corbijn. Visually, the film is stunning. The story meanders a bit, but is always pulled back by the gigs they're either going to or playing.

    Sam Riley plays the role of Ian Curtis well, but doesn't quite have the gravitas to pull off Curtis' slide towards suicide. The rest of the cast are good, with Samantha Morton particularly impressive as Deborah Curtis.
