"In the end it went quite smoothly maybe because I had a really great cast," the Dutch director said. "According to New Order, their reaction to the film was that it was really accurate."
As for the silly Reeler question asking why Harvey Weinstein would be interested in a film about Joy Division, Corbijn drops the wry, "I think [Harvey's] been seen dancing to Joy Division." We were fairly disappointed by "Control," but you should probably still see for yourself [ed. or wait for DVD and spare yourself the time and money].
Former NME writer Paul Morley, who was around for the Joy Division heyday era, wrote an interesting piece in the Guardian about the film called, "How to make a film about the short and tragic life of Ian Curtis." It's good backstory on the history of all the players involved in the film if you're not already JD obsessed.
