Winner of nine film festival awards, including three at the Cannes Film Festival, CONTROL profiles Ian Curtis, the lead singer of the pioneering post-punk band Joy Division.


The contest is over. It ended on June 6, 2008.

Now go back to Glorious Noise and patiently wait for the next cool contest.

CONTROL stars two-time Academy Award® nominee Samantha Morton (In America, Minority Report), Alexandra Maria Lara (Downfall) and relative newcomer Sam Riley (24 Hour Party People). Filmed in color and transferred to black-and-white for a surreal and edgy vibe, the film has been hailed as “the most acclaimed brit-pic of the year” (Variety) and “a handsome, lyrically moving drama” (The Times).

The retrospective documentary JOY DIVISION, directed by music-video veteran Grant Gee, chronicles the band’s progression, as well as social and external conditions that influenced them. Blending archival footage and revealing testimonies from band members and key musical players, JOY DIVISION gives an inside look at everything surrounding the rock scene of the 1970’s.

CONTROL and documentary JOY DIVISION rock onto DVD June 3rd and June 17th, respectively, from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company under The Miriam Collection.

  1. Come on now. People are way too morbid about this band. They played some badass rock music and Ian Curtis had some distinctive (if not particularly funky) dance moves. We wanna see everybody put their own twist on them! Get down, y’all.

  2. That’s what I mean; I wasn’t talking about the suicide stuff.

    Who wants to see more people dance like that?
