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.
