Part of my First & Last 10 Minute tribute to GREAT film. Control is a 2007 film, directed by Dutch director Anton Corbijn. The black-and-white film is a biopic about the late Ian Curtis (1956-1980), lead singer of post-punk band Joy Division. The screenplay written by Matt Greenhalgh is based on the book Touching from a Distance, by Curtis’s widow, Deborah, who is also a co-producer of the film. The film details the life of the troubled young musician, who forged a new kind of music out of the punk rock scene of the United Kingdom in the 1970s, and the band Joy Division, which he headed from 1977 to 1980. It also deals with his rocky marriage and extra-marital affairs, as well as his increasingly frequent seizures, which were thought to contribute to the circumstances leading to his suicide on the eve of Joy Division’s first US tour. The title is a reference to the Joy Division song, “She’s Lost Control” — believed to be a reference to an epileptic client befriended by Curtis while employed at a Job Centre in Manchester, who later died during a seizure. Enjoy the first 10 minutes — then rent or buy this great film. And for those of you who can’t resist, feel free to see the last 10 minutes — also available on YouTube.
