Joy Division's weird magnetism 
Salon.com reviews 'Joy Division' (and 'Control') at the Toronto International Film Festival and highlights director Grant Gee's technical and creative abilities, saying: "He has a knack for nonfiction storytelling: He never resorts to frenetic editing to capture our attention, nor does he bore us to death with expository voice-overs. The performance footage captures perfectly the weird magnetism of the band's live performances. The year 1980 may seem like a long time ago, but Grant's picture is so immediate, and so alive, that it may as well have been yesterday."

Meanwhile, cinematical.com has a downloadable Grant Gee audio interview.
