I've been writing several entries reviewing the film "Control" about Joy Division but I can't seem to get it right. For now I'll just say it's a mistake to think that a movie will be good because it's based on the story of a great band.

Biopics about bands tend to be really, really bad almost as a rule. I think the reason is because, in most cases, you can find archival footage of these bands performing, and you're always going to have the records to work with, and these things are going to capture the energy far better than any dramatization ever will.

I had heard really good things about "Control," but I can't bring myself to watch it.
