Voltage reviews Control

Max reviews Control/hits nail on head.

It's a restrained, bleak, fairly naturalistic look at the turmoil that overtook a depressive, creative young man in a particular place and time.

Like Max, I too would have liked a deeper look into Curtis's/Joy Division's vision and creative process, yet agree there's only so much you can do in 100 minutes. As one of several Joy Division bio-pics and documentaries, Control does an excellent job by focusing on one area very well.
