Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 10/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "As touching a biopic as you'll see all year....Riley and the band excel, as Corbijn essays a mood both timeless and period-precise."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/12/2007
"CONTROL goes past the clich├ęs of punk rock-god gloom to offer a snapshot of alienation that's shockingly humane." -- Grade: B+
Uncut - 11/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "CONTROL is a trenchant, intelligent exercise in stripping away the many myths surrounding both Curtis and the music world generally."
Rolling Stone - 10/18/2007
3 stars out of 4 -- "Rock photo guru Anton Corbijn hits all the right notes in his remarkable feature-directing debut."
Empire - 11/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "Playing live, the cast vividly recreate the band's jarring guitar sound....CONTROL is up there with PERFORMANCE and LAST DAYS."
Box Office - 11/01/2007
"Distinguished by its close connection to its subjects, coupled with unexpected flashes of irreverent humor, the film is as emotionally charged as the music it celebrates."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2007
"The actors playing Joy Division perform the music themselves in a spot-on recreation of the band's sound and dynamic."
Los Angeles Times - 10/19/2007
"CONTROL keeps you riveted...Samantha Morton again shows why she's one of her generation's best actors..."
Mojo - 03/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "CONTROL is a potent and compelling film, carried by the two extraordinary performances of Riley and Samantha Morton..."
