Movies Control Monday 24 September 2007
Movie about the life of Ian Curtis, the singer of my all-time favourite band Joy Division, directed by Anton Corbijn who in the past made great video clips for Depeche Mode and Front 242, two of my other favourite bands. This movie could only be excellent, and it was, but it's only for Joy Division fans. By itself it's probably just a depressing movie about a guy struggling with epilepsy and a marriage he regrets, but as it offers insight into the life of one of the great geniuses of modern music and features many of his songs and lyrics, it's fantastic to watch - if you're into Joy Division. 9/10
