Yeah! I thought that when I saw it too! And the guy that plays Ian is in a band of his own called 10,000 Things. SUCH a beautiful film :)

Ummm... hard to describe... 'indie'?? Naw, that doesn't work, um, rock sort of... but uh, not so edgy

Nothing similar to Joy Division so?

I will check out the band though. He lives in Berlin at this moment, I didn't even know that... :o And he dates the actress that played the role of Annik in the film. Lucky git :P

Also, seeing a great film like this made me play Unknown Pleasures again several times the last days, a reminder of how great Joy Division was. I know it is not the same without Ian, but it is really hard to believe that New Order is what remains of JD now. Without wanting to be cruel, but I think New Order are nothing compared to the intensity and passion of Joy Division. But they do deserve some credit for changing the band name and giving Ian the respect that was well due, rather than cashing in on further using the Joy Division moniker.

Saw In Bruges and it was dark as hell, in a bad way. The first half? Funny enough. The second half? Awful. So yeah- maybe give that one a miss.

I refuse to watch anything with Colin Farrell in it, he's a complete moron.

I really enjoyed Cloverfield. It was an interesting take on the genre (Transformers,,,eugh).

I watched No Country For Old Men recently and it was fantastic. I read the book before going to see it and I can safely say it falls into that small category of films that are actually better than the book. The Coens are a couple of wee geniuses.
Freedom is the only way, yeah

I saw This Is England this afternoon, and I thought it was brilliant. It was a bit refreshing to see a portion of the original non-racist skinhead subculture given the spotlight as opposed to the purely racist portion prominently shown in mainstream American films (most notably The Believer and American History X).

The film did cause me to wonder about one thing, which I'll pose as a question here: Exactly how turbulent was English society in the 1980s, particularly under Thatcher rule? It's a bit difficult for me to get a clear understanding on my own, being from an area of the world that is somewhat insulated from cultural and/or class conflicts.

I am sorry I cannot answer your question BoxGuy as I was in my home country in the 80's.
I just finished watching This is England on Film4 and I thought it was good, too.
The boy was convincing and the whole film was well directed, acted and produced.

Shame they used the version of "Pls, pls, let me get..." by Clayhill instead of The Smiths' one.
