Anton Corbijn's Control (2007)

Control3One of the most critically acclaimed films at this year's Cannes Film Festival has been Anton Corbijn's new movie Control (2007) which details the tragic life of Ian Curtis, the talented and enigmatic singer of Joy Division whose personal and professional problems led him to commit suicide at the age of 23. The film stars Sam Riley as Ian Curtis. Riley was also featured in the 2002 film 24 Hour Party People.

Director Anton Corbijn is an accomplished band photographer who has also made many music video's for groups such as Joy Division, Depeche Mode and U2. Control is Anton Corbijn's first full-length feature film and it's based on the book Touching From a Distance which was written by Ian Curtis' widow Deborah Curtis.

According to Charlotte Higgins at the Guardian, during the film's debut at Cannes members of New Order flew in to support the movie. Corbijn has said "New Order hardly agree on anything, but all agree that they love the film."

Control should start playing in European theaters in the Fall. For more information see the film's official website:
