Control, a biopic of the late Ian Curtis, lead singer with gloomy Brit indie rockers Joy Division, is stylishly directed by rock photographer Anton Corbijn and boasts a great central performance from Sam Riley. But 2002’s 24 Hour Party People, which covers much of the same ground, is a lot more fun. EXTRAS Corbijn, who knew Curtis, expertly discusses his subject in a making-of doc and on a commentary track. Also included: a sizable gallery of production stills and a TV clip of the real Joy Division playing their single ”Transmission.” B
Genre: Biography, Drama; Starring: Samantha Morton, Sam Riley; Director: Anton Corbijn; Author: Matt Greenhalgh; Runtime (in minutes): 122; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: The Weinstein Company
