Control

Brilliant film coming out about the brilliant, brilliant Joy Division and the late Ian Curtis.

Here’s a good article about it.

Film looks amazing, with Sam Riley and Samantha Morton playing the leads.

One of the few truly original bands, in a world of legendary characters, including (the all dead); Tony Wilson, Rob Gretton and Martin Hannett.

The entertaining, if largely toothless, 24 Hour Party People was a slightly less harrowing look at Factory.  The scene that summed the spirit up best for me was this one.
