Attention Joy Division fans and music history buffs in general: Control, the new film about Ian Curtis, the enigmatic singer of Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23, is garnering terrific reviews and high praise for the star, Sam Riley, who gives a "knockout" performance, says Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. "[Director Anton] Corbijn, shooting with a poet's eye in a harshly stunning black-and-white, cuts to the soul of Ian's life and music. You don't watch this movie, you live it."
And now, thanks to the generosity of GreenCine itself and our staff full of 80s music freaks, 2 lucky winners of our Joy Division contest will receive a copy of the brand spanking new 2-disc collector's edition of the classic Joy Division set, "Closer."
