I finally got round to seeing the Joy Division film, "Control", the other night. It's very good and Sam Riley, who plays Ian Curtis, is excellent. The director, Anton Corbijn, somehow manages to conjure up the feeling of the late 1970s just by having the actors frequently use call-boxes or those telephones with big round dials. And it's shot entirely in black-and-white, which is how I remember the late 1970s/ early 1980s anyway. Definitely worth seeing.
