(Film) Control - Anyone fancy coming to see it with me?

Control is finally released today.

To quote the blueb:

"Anton Corbijn’s first film celebrates the troubled life of Joy Division’s post-punk legend Ian Curtis and  incisively focuses on Curtis’s failing marriage and the uncontrollable intensity of the nihilistic emotions displaced by his life into his art. Corbijn, who worked with the band for many years as their photographer, films in high-contrast monochrome and gets every detail exactly right. The songs are fantastic, but even better are the performances, with relative newcomer Sam Riley astonishing as Curtis.
Control won the award for best new British Feature at the recent Edinburgh Festival and also received the Best Performance award for Sam Riley's portrayal of Ian Curtis."

It's playing at the East Finchley Phoenix and is on at 3.45 (not Sunday), 6.15 and 8.45.

I'm thinking about either Saturday afternoon (3.45) or Monday evening (8.45).

Any takers?
