[news.bbc.co.uk...]


A British film about the life and death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, starring a first-time actor, has earned a rapturous reception in Cannes. ...

From Britains No. 1 Quality Newspaper Website [telegraph.co.uk], according to their masthead, hehe...

Critics have described his portrayal of troubled singer Ian Curtis, who committed suicide on the eve of the band's first American tour, as "spectacular" and "outstanding".

Yesterday it received a standing ovation at its premiere on the Croisette. Even surviving members of the group were impressed.

Oooooooo... probably going to see that five times.

i was made to understand that Ian was actually played by the same fellow that was in 24 party people? and is based on deb curtis' book.

Bernard Summer of New Order said of the actor playing Ian Curtis in 24h PP: "bloody #*$!ing brilliant"

There had been rumours of another Joy Division biopic, with Ian being played by Jude Law. No matter the peoples involved, need to see them all.

I will now complete my evening with a beverage of the adult nature and a few listenings of "the only mistake"

Personally, I'm looking forward to the CORMAC MCARTHY flick, "No Country for Old Men".

If you haven't seen "24 hour party people" do so because it's a great movie.

I watched it, then watched it the following day it was so good. Funny as well.

24hPP: Fantastic film. I'm eager to see that new Curtis biopic

as Joy Division fans *(representing... a certain age group.. a-hem) grow into more positions of influence, I think signing contracts in blood is going to be the next corporate fad.

My next startup is going to be a "something-Factory", and the employee contract will be "We are all partners, I will not $#!@ you over and you can $#@! off any time you $#!@ing want"

"Until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling..."
