This movie examines the life of Joy Division and their frontman, Ian Curtis.
It was directed by the famous Photographer Antony Curbjin.
Ian Curtis is a cult icon amongst the goth and post punk cliques, changing with joy division the shape of the british school of Punk/Post Punk influenced music forever alongside Mark e. smith from The Fall, by painting bitter landscapes of disorder, loss of control and fascistic dictatorships disguised as democracies. Unfortunatelly, Ian hanged himself in 1980 due to depression caused naturaly, his relationship with his long time wife Debbie Curtis breaking up, and his grande epilepsy fits that stopped him sometimes from going on stage.
Joy Division is a reference to the whore houses that the germans used during World war II. It's an ironical name, as not any member was a nazi (Except Bernard Sumner [The Guitarist], who was a royalist. But not a nazi.). The name tries to express the ghastlyness and decadence of of the 20th century and years to come.
But anyways, enough brainfood, who has seen 'Control'. If so, what where your opinions on it? Are you a fan of joy division?
