A profile of Ian Curtis, the enigmatic singer of Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23.
The poem being recited before their first gig is "Evidently Chicken Town" by John Cooper Clarke.
Ian Curtis: Hmm?
Annik Honore: I'm a little scared.
Ian Curtis: Scared of what?
Annik Honore: Scared of falling in love with you.
Ian Curtis sits at home, watching the Werner Herzog film "Stroszek", opening a bottle of whiskey during a scene, where the mobile home of Stroszeks protagonists is auctioned off. In the next scene, presumably some time later, we see that Curtis is visibly intoxicated and that the bottle is almost empty; however, in "Stroszek" barely two minutes have gone by.
