  • British actor Sam Riley premiered onscreen with a much-coveted lead, and a professionally demanding one at that: the biographical portrayal of controversial, ill-fated post-punk singer Ian Curtis, in photographer-turned-director Anton Corbijn's haunting biopic Control (2007). Riley's courageous and disciplined performance earned a myriad of advance praises when the film swept through the festival circuit, foreshadowing an eminently successful career for the young thespian.

Diaval
What have you done to my beautiful self?
Sal Paradise/Jack Kerouac
We were performing our one and noble action of the time- move.
Ian Curtis
So this is permanence. Love shattered pride what once was innocence turned on its side. A cloud hangs over me marks every move deep in the memory of what once was love.
Sal Paradise/Jack Kerouac
...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles...
