The Confusion in Her Eyes it Says it All

As promised the next installment of the "highly anticipated" and "critically acclaimed" Nutopia Movie Review.
Tonight we look at a superb yet dark biopic of the front man of Joy Division, Ian Curtis.

Basics: Rebellion, Anger, Sadness, Confusion, Mayhem, Joy & Shock are just a few emotions that sum up this gem of a film looking at the unfortunately brief history of Joy Division. The film however mostly focuses on the relationships that literally tear Curtis apart mentally.

Best Bit: If 24 Hour Party People makes Tony Wilson out to be God & Genius, Control brings him a bit back to earth. Oh and the music particularity the performance of "She's Lost Control". The soundtrack is worth a listen or two as well featuring songs from the Velvet Underground, David Bowie and a couple New Order tracks amongst other famous names of the time.

Bit Too Much: Very hard to find any major flaws with this one it's real good. Highly Recommended by the Crew.

On Deck: I'm Not There

Good weekend to all,
