Yeah, looks great. I've been a fan of Anton Corbijn for ages, great stuff.

Beautifully shot, amazing perfromances from the lead characters.
The attention to detail is astounding, without detracting from the story at all.
You really do believe in the characters and i found it heartbreaking.
This is a love story, not the story of Joy Division, but the fantastic music just adds to it.
Can't recommend it highly enough.

Absolutely fantastic -loved every minute, two hours well spent. The script, performances and the whole look of the film never allowed my attention to waiver.

No-one left the cinema until the soundtrack finished!

Wardle, my other half wasn't a big Joy Division fan but really enjoyed it.

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

I am desperate to see this......I don't think I have wanted to watch a film more, my brother's girlfriend came back after seeing it and she was crying her heart out for ages :?

Just seen it and really enjoyed it .The cast were fantastic especially the bloke playing Curtis .The 1970's atmosphere was captured beautifully and the photography was stunning .

A good review here and a link to the trailer :

It is a great, great film. Does the whole story justice. Lots to come from Sam Riley, for sure.

Just seen this-it stayed in my head for days, felt like I'd been transported back to that time, incredibly beautifully shot, acting was just awesome. My only detraction is it left me feeling very very sad

Was delighted that Mark Kermode acknowledged the fact that this is such a spectacular film and awarded Sam Riley Best Actor in his awards on the Culture Show.
He (Sam Riley) seems to have been virtually ignored besides during awards season. :roll:
