Drama av Anton Corbijn med Sam Riley och Samantha Morton. 

Musikvideoregissören och fotografen Anton Corbijns debutfilm Control fick ett strålande mottagande efter premiären i Cannes. Filmen handlar om Joy Divisions legendariske sångare, som tog sitt liv endast 23 år gammal. Curtis spelas av stjärnskottet Sam Riley, och hans unga hustru Deborah – vars självbiografi filmen bygger på – av tvåfaldigt Oscarnominerade Samantha Morton.

You don’t have to know anything about Joy Division to grasp the mysterious sorrow at its heart.

A.O. Scott, The New York Times

It’s Corbijn, shooting with a poet’s eye in a harshly stunning black-and-white, who cuts to the soul of Ian’s life and music. You don’t watch this movie, you live it.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Control goes past the clichés of punk rock-god gloom to offer a snapshot of alienation that’s shockingly humane.

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Lovely and deeply touching picture.

Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com

Those who worship Joy Division may bridle at Corbijn’s film for its reluctance to mythologize their hero. Speaking as someone so irretrievably square that I not only never listened to the band but didn’t even know anyone who liked it, I can’t imagine a tribute more fitting than this.

Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
