Anton Corbijn’s Control Released on DVD

This week marks the DVD release of Anton Corbijnís feature film debut Control. Corbijn is a celebrated video director and photographer for such artists as Depeche Mode and U2. The film is about Ian Curtis, the lead singer of the band Joy Divison. It was based on the book Touching from a Distance, which was written by the wife of Ian Curtis.

Shot in color stock but printed into black and white to reflect the atomosphere of the band, the film deals with the rise of Joy Divison but also Ian Curtisí personal life. Sam Curtis does a bang up job playing the iconic singer, and the scenes featuring the band are hypnotic, marking a strong debut for Corbijn.
