wongie soundtrack: control

joy division - love will tear us apart [link 2]
joy division - transmission (cast version) [link 2]
[uber famous photographer anton corbijn makes his feature debut with this passionate ode to the short life and times of joy division lead singer ian curtis. fronting half of the films budget, control made it's world premiere at the cannes film festival (where it won the director's fortnight prize for best film) and is finally getting kudos on uk and limited us screens. i caught the film awhile back at cannes and though i have a few problems with it, my love for ian curtis and joy division have definitely been re-ignited.]

control - promo trailer
[this is actually the cannes film festival 4 minute promo trailer that gives you a very good (some might say too good) idea of what the movie is about. i gotta say that sam riley's performance of ian curtis is pretty transformative (he even sings live in the film). you can definitely count me in as a fan!]
