Hook And Morris Pan Curtis Biopic

PETER HOOK and STEPHEN MORRIS have panned a forthcoming movie about their former JOY DIVISION bandmate IAN CURTIS, branding it inaccurate. The pop pair enjoyed the Anton Corbijn directed movie Control, but felt the depiction of the band's time together, which ended with Curtis' demise in 1980, took too many liberties. Morris says, "None of it's true, really. It's sort of true, but you have to take liberties when you're making a film because the truth is too boring. "We've seen it a couple of times. It's good, very good. It's a bit hard to watch when you're involved in it as much as Peter and I have been though, but Anton's done a really good job." Hook admits it was hard to watch the film, explaining, "It was like having your heart stamped on. The weirdest thing was at the end, when it really hurt and everybody started clapping. It would've been nice to have a dignified silence." Curtis was 23-years-old when he hung himself.
