After much consideration…

03/30/2009

I talked to a coworker of mine the other day about Control, and did a lot of research on Joy Division and Ian Curtis, and I’ve rethought my previous review. Apparently none of his bandmates, his wife, nor his girlfriend thought Ian would ever commit suicide. No one knew he was so incredibly depressed. Now I understand the ending of the film, and why Ian’s death was so sudden and seemed so unwarranted. His death was sudden and surprising in his real life, exactly the same way it was shown in the film.

Brilliant.
