Control : Film Review



Anton Corbijn's film Control is one of those films that you have to watch even if you are not a fan of Joy Division. The film was shot in a brooding black and white format that set the tone of the film to a point. The film focus was mostly on the life and fall of Ian Curtis. A very emotional man dealing with the darker parts of his life through his songs. All the characters were portrayed extremely believable with all the situations that came with the band. Sam Riley resurrected Ian Curtis to life on the screen, goosebumps arose on how real it felt watching the film with an eerie feeling. This is a film for any music lover or future cinematographers to enjoy and own. I highly reccomend Control for your viewing pleasure of a music Icon.
