I want to see this film so badly, it's killing me.
I think Sam Riley looks brilliantly like Ian Curtis. According to the IMDB, Sam Riley previously played Mark E Smith (frontman of The Fall) in 24 Hour Party People..
Not quite from the separated-at-birth files, I would say.
I guess that's why those theatre makeup people get paid the big bucks.Although Control is ultimately a tragedy, of course, it appears to have spots of insider humour (which, next to the larfs afforded by Schadenfreude, is the best sort there is). After Ian Curtis has an epileptic seizure on-stage, Rob Gretton tells him things could be worse, he could be the singer in The Fall.
.Allison (who knows her films, by god) has gone on record as saying that the cinematography is gorgeous. The trailer sure looks stunning to me. It certainly has real Atmosphere.mp3.
And really what more is there left to say, other than She's Lost Control.mp3.
