Review of Control

Well written and directed biopic about Ian Curtis, lead singer of Joy Division. Riley does a good job of portraying the young and quiet but enigmatic vocalist and his troubles throughout his short career in music leading up to 1980, while Corbijn's direction lends a very authentic feel to the action onscreen, not least the choice to shoot in black and white. While not the best music biopic of the 21st century thus far (that accolade probably goes to Walk the Line), Control certainly rates among the better ones.

8/10
