I viewed it again, two years after having first watched it in theatre, and my opinion has not changed : before being a biopic, Control is the psychological depiction of a young man overcome by a sudden fame and a family life he is unable to face, torn between two women between whom he's unable to choose and devastated by epileptic fits he's unable to control. The rock icon steps aside, all the emphasis being laid on the man and on the citizen Curtis.
The result is authentic, esthetically perfect, excellently performed, with a terrific soundtrack. A director is born.
