Critic Reviews for Joy Division
Energetic tell-all pic about the beginnings in 1976 of the legendary post-punk rock band from the grimy factory city of Manchester.
There will surely come a point when the mythology around Salford's most famous rock group will run dry, but it hasn't yet: this superbly made documentary by Grant Gee deserves to sit on DVD shelves everywhere as a companion piece to Control.
Audience Reviews for Joy Division
One of the best and honest accounts of one of the most influential rock bands you're ever likely to see. Glad to see a documentary about Joy Division that focuses on the band themselves. Really really worth the watch!
Less accessible to newcomers to Joy Division than the estimable 'Control' but a treasure for fans with copious extras.
A remarkably well made documentary about the band Joy Division, the city of Manchester and the music scene the sprung from there in the late 70's and which continues to be a vital source of talent and influence in the music industry today. While I enjoyed this film immensely...I can't say that it is for everyone. But if you have any interest in the bands Warsaw, Joy Division or New Order...or if you are a fan of the British music scene in general, you will no doubt find this a wonderful retrospective of not just an amazing band...but of an incredibly interesting and complex city as well.
