Rock photo guru Anton Corbijn hits all the right notes in his remarkable feature-directing debut. His muse is Ian Curtis (a knockout Sam Riley), the epileptic lead singer of the Brit punk band Joy Division, who hanged himself in 1980 at twenty-three. Samantha Morton plays the wife who helped him fight his demons, and Tony Kebbell excels as the band manager. But it's Corbijn, shooting with a poet's eye in a harshly stunning black-and-white, who cuts to the soul of Ian's life and music. You don't watch this movie, you live it.
