7. Control (2007)

Control is an indie movie starring Sam Riley as he plays the lead as Ian Curtis who was the lead singer of the 1970’s post punk band called Joy Division. It is a touching account of the ill fated lead singer and tells the story of a troubled life, based on the memoirs written by his widow Deborah called Touching From a Distance. Curtis struggled with his marriage as he struggled with epilepsy and depression and an on-going affair with journalist Annik Honore, which eventually resulted in him taking his own life in 1980. It’s an incredible life story with a legendary soundtrack with Riley doing all of his own singing.
