Anton Corbijn's movie CONTROL about Ian Curtis career as lead of Joy Division is one of rare cases of passionate filmmaking, when people put out their best to produce work of art. Actors performances real, sets well lived in. It revoked familiar late 70's feel, sometimes I felt like I'm in the movie myself, hanging out in the bar or backstage. Simple black & white cinematography lets story unfold itself without technical or visual trickery. Anton, who is known for superb music photography, probably consciously avoided more stylized look of his music videos. This not a rock movie. This a movie about sensitive troubled soul trapped in the bleak reality.
