Directed by Anton Corbijn - a photographer well known for his iconic shots of, among others, U2 - 'Control' is a movie based on the life and death of Ian Curtis. He was frontman of the legendary Manchester band Joy Division, best known for songs like 'Transmission' and 'Love will Tear Us Apart'. Those who didn't respond to Joy Division at the time dismissed them as misery merchants, but in truth there really was much actual suffering in the mind of Ian Curtis. And in 1980, at the age of just 23, he took his own life. 'Control', shot in black and white on the streets of Macclesfield, stars Sam Riley as Curtis and Samantha Morton as his wife, Debbie, on whose book the movie is based.
