Control at Film Forum
Sam Riley resurrects a young Ian Curtis, former frontman of influential post-punk band Joy Division, in Anton Corbijn’s biopic, Control. Curtis, who hanged himself a month short of his twenty-fourth birthday, went on to become a posterchild for disaffected suburban goths everywhere. Control‘s run at Film Forum ends Tuesday.
Film Forum, 209 W Houston St., (212) 727-8110, $10.50. Check Film Forum for showtimes.

Islands + The Octopus Project + Enon + And You Will Know…
