3 years that changed the world! For those of us listening at the time.

Thanks for the clip BV, this is a rare film that will pull me into the theaters.

*WARNING, SPOILER BELOW*


Ian Curtis commits suicide in the end.

He actually doesn't.. They changed some details so that people wouldn't find it "boring".. Instead of killing himself Ian now escapes to Mexico following a spectacular car chase sequence. There's also a zany subplot involving Peter Hook and Stephen Morris investigating the mysterious murder of a wealthy shipping magnate.

joy division is a great band, but that movie looks painfully boring.
