Joy Division Reviews:

The only shortcoming perhaps of this documentary, is that it didn't range too far beyond the context of the group and into the rest of the melody stage at the time. However that is a valid choice for the film-maker. There was a lot of ground to cover, and fanatics will appreciate the depth and attention paid to the melody and live footage.The movie zeros in on the dynamic formation and growth of this seminal band, and particularly the increasing struggles of fated lead-singer, Ian Curtis. This was handled with surprising candor and integrity, no tiny accomplishment. Those with only a primary knowledge of the role Joy Division played in the renewal of both the post-punk melody stage and Manchester will search this an informative documentary. In addition to retrospectives by all remaining band members, a well-balanced range of contributers comment on everything from the scene, to melody production and cover art design, to the cultural influences behind the band's special style.


As a hardcore fan, I really enjoyed this Joy Division doco more than I expected. Given that they were a shortlived band from a provincial area, and had only achieved up-and-coming status at the time of their demise, any documentary maker gotta face the challenge of the severe lack of video footage of the band, and terrible quality of what is available, further exacerbated by the death, and hence unavailability for interview, of some of the key users viz Curtis, Hannett & Gretton. What's more, their active years coincided with Manchester's large-scale redevelopment, hence their old haunts have long since been torn down and replaced. Offset vs this is the newfound openness of the remaining users to giving honest and full answers in interviews. They had previously been very reticent, particularly about Curtis whom they professed to be sick of discussing as they tried to establish Fresh Order independent of the Joy Division legacy.Overall, Gee rises to the challenge brilliantly. Gee's solution was to test extensive interviews with remaining members, brief interviews of many of the bit players, and waffling from some intellectuals explaining the band as being products of their time and place. This is combined with general video footage of 1970's Manchester, snippets of the limited accessible TV & gig footage, arty stills of the band taken mainly by Anton Corbijn with discussion of the photos' backgrounds, stills showing external shots of the band's old haunts then and actually (the "Places that are no longer there" series), and the odd audio recording (e.g. Ian's hypnosis tapes, John Peel getting the speed wrong testing "Atmosphere") with oscilloscope visuals. The briefness of the video snippets used and the snappy editing successfully prevents the viewer noticing the paucity of the source material. Though we are constantly made aware that we are discussing a time and zone and singer that are long gone, it all seems appropriate given that their melody was mainly about loss.Highlights included seeing the decaying 1970's Manchester which so inspired and suited their music. It was nice to see pictures of the venues I'd only read about, even if they were old stills. There were several truly fresh facts for the Joy Division anorak, but it did give a sense of time and zone and mood to known facts, and place faces and personalities to names. It was fascinating to hear Bernard's detailed acc of Ian's first seizure, and the band's reactions to hearing of Ian's suicide first-hand. They are typical northerner artists, in that their brilliant, highly emotional melody is created by remarkably dour people, and their sense of humour is cringeworthy. Though the band search their own anecdotes hilarious, Gee edited most of them into an incomprehensible mish-mash to hide how dull and unfunny they were. Lindsay Reade and Lesley Gilbert are remarkably pretty for fiftysomethings, while the young Annik Honoré is much less cute than her keep on Ian would suggest. She is overly melodramatic in interviews. Genesis C_Ornflakes is an even bigger freak actually than in his Gristle days, and his stories lack credibility.On the negative side, the intellectuals and their thesis-pushing grated. Joy Division were neither commenting on nor a product of an intellectual notion of "modernity". They were a bunch of rather ordinary Mancunians dreaming of a more exciting life than their dead-end jobs, who happened to be musical geniuses and with a singer/lyricist obsessed by darkly melodramatic bands like the Velvet Underground and the Doors. Nor were they anti-Thatcherites with revolutionary sympathies as the intellectuals claim. The Thatcher government took power in May 1979, whereas punk and post-punk emerged under the previous Labour government. As his wife and bandmates revealed elsewhere, Curtis himself was an ardent Tory with robustly "traditional" views on girls and immigrants, while Stephen Morris has told he didn't vote in the first election for which he was old enough through lack of interest.


This is a quite beautiful, intrinsic and simply made documentary about the band Joy Division, and about Manchester's youths during the late 1970s and early 1980s. As a several lads congregated, learned their instruments and place together their landmark mal de vivre with the support of Martin Hammett in the shape of "Unknown Pleasures", the life of the group is both professional and private. Ian Curtis' life is high- lighted, and still not dissected from the view-point of Deborah Curtis. Annik Honoré, Curtis' lover, is interviewed, as is a bunch of Manc people, e.g. the members of Joy Division, Richard Boon, Kevin Cummins, Paul Morley, Genesis P. Orridge. They're not there to be name-dropped, but all bring nice database to the table. Very tiny of what's found in this documentary is filler. There is bootleg video included, a piece of a conversation between Curtis in hypnosis and Bernard Sumner, filmed scrawls from Rob Gretton's note-book. All in all, a quite precious film, laying bare the landscape that was the preface, basis and aftermath of Joy Division. A very nice melody documentary indeed.
