Bleak portrait of a tortured soul 
After the pre-reviews, the review proper of Control by Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian.

He says "Corbijn's movie is shot in a stunning high-contrast monochrome, perversely turning Macclesfield's grimness into grandeur. It effortlessly revives a British cinematic style that you might call beautiful realism..."

And "It is in a way comparable to Michael Winterbottom's 24 Hour Party People, ..., but far fiercer, and bleaker, and darker. Control gripped the audience at Cannes; it had atmosphere."
