Drugs and their side-effects no longer a schoolboy's recreational laugh. Prescription bottles grip with morbid fascination.
And the knowledge that doctors don't have a cure. The film carries viewers away with blistering intensity. Relative newcomer Sam Riley plays Curtis with alarming energy.
With Samantha Morton, it's not what she says but what you see going through her mind. She contains her expressiveness for the camera to pick up rather than thrusting it on us. We want to cry inside for her character. As a feat of interiorisation, Control puts her as a contender in the shoes of Meryl Streep. Supporting cast members come through with believability and sincerity, sparkling with well-honed contrasts. Toby Kebbell, fast-talking manager Rob, lifts us out of the depressive mood with wisecracks enough to make legless monkeys jump.

Established Romanian actress, Alexandra Maria Lara, succeeds in making Annik far more than the two-dimensional bit-of-fluff that would have been an easy course. As potential home-breaker, it is tempting to hate her, yet her character is shown with the intellectual appreciation and chemistry that Debbie can no longer offer.

It is the kitchen-sink, downtrodden existence that her Debbie inhabits. Cinematography is also reminiscent of this period, with its careful black-and-white observation of working class streets. I watched it a second time, enjoying careful compositions and suggestive mise-en-scene.
But director Anton Corbijn is typically modest. And hide from these days we remained all alone. It is such a potent, almost frightening feat, that we have to shake ourselves to remember he only got the part when he was stuck for a job. But the 'luck' is very well deserved. His 'Ian' is physically and mentally complex. When I had managed to stop him on the Red Carpet long enough to congratulate him, Mr Riley explains that he had a friend who was an epileptic.
We know the ending and it is a case of waiting for it to happen.
And although it features plenty of excellent Joy Division tracks, any music biopic will never be good enough or accurate enough for some fans. Fortunately this is not just for music fans but for serious film fans as well. It careers in a tightly controlled arc, where music biopic meets cinematic excellence. Why should you see it?
