The dominant buzz at FICCO seems to be over "Control." It's the 2007 biopic on Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. The film's screenings during the festival have so far been selling out hours in advance. When I arrived at Mexico City's World Trade Center cineplex to nab my reserved tickets for Thursday night, a sign had been typed and printed and taped to the box office window: "Control = Sold Out." The film is by first-time director Anton Corbijn and is based partly on the book by Curtis's widow Deborah, "Touching From a Distance." Joy Division's influence on "post punk" and modern "indie rock" cannot be overemphasized. "Control" however is focused on humanizing Curtis in the rawest terms. An epileptic and embattled poet, the singer committed suicide at age 23.
