"As a fan of Joy Division, I liked it a lot and I was very pleased with the outcome of this film, it portrayed fairly closely the troubled life that Ian Curtis led and Joy Division's career, it is interesting that in one of the final scenes the director shows the remaining band members, who were later to form New Order, seated at a table with an empty space, which is pretty cool. By the way, the soundtrack was chosen very precisely but I think that the song New Dawn Fades was missing... I would like to see it playing. If you're a fan of the band: watch. And if you're not a fan: watch too. "Confusion in her eyes that says it all, she's lost control.""

"I got into a trance watching ‘Control.’ Sam Davis and the other cast portray the events of Ian Curtis and Joy Division with great emotion that is sensitive and very human. As a fan of Joy Division and it’s subsequent line up of New Order, it was very enjoyable. But if you aren’t into their music, you would still enjoy this biopic, it’s one of the better more faithful ones of the genre, and not too bleak as you would expect it to be."

"This movie is so emotional and extremely worth watching if you'd like to dive into the world of Ian Curtis. His inner conflicts are well shown and the melancholy of the movie just fits into the overall feeling of this artwork and also creates the opportunity to really relate to Ian's struggles. The soundtracks guide you through the different phases of his life and create a feeling of eternity. In the end, I couldn't help myself but cry like a baby. Thank you, Anton Corbijn and all others involved - this will always be a fascinating insight into one of the most interesting and talented persons that have ever existed. "
