| I was wrong for expecting more...
I won't be long. I am a huge fan of the band, and I stayed a little disappointed figuring out that the movie is mostly about Ian's sentimental life.

Romanticizing Curtis probably made a horde of new fans, but I think there must have been more depth in that person than the film showed.

Not to mention other characters that are so poorly given trough the movie it seemed a bit strange...

I did like some scenes, I still recommend the film, especially if it will make one a fan of Joy Division!

And please, do watch 24 hour party people...I was amazed by the character of T. Wilson who seemed like quite a prick in this film. In 24 hour party people Tony was described as a ludistic character capable of inventing quite a lot...
