Control: Ian Curtis in Focus (a brief post)

 

Ian Curtis (from Alternative Eye)

 

I just saw Control, a 2007 movie that profiled the final years of Ian Curtis’ short life. Ian Curtis was the lead vocalist and songwriter of the influential postpunk band, Joy Division. I was browsing through YouTube for videos of the band’s live performances when I came across an excerpt of the film. I thought it was a real gig until I saw some dramatics. Turns out, it was part of a full-blown movie. Due to my fondness of the band and their music, I’ll be writing a piece about this one. I was supposed to finish it today but due to unexpected events I’ll finish it in a day or two. Drop by here from time to time to check. Later!
