On this week’s review podcast we take a look at two very different films – one is about Ian Curtis and Joy Division, the other a thriller set in Saudi Arabia.
Directed by Anton Corbijn, the film explores the early years of Curtis, the formation of the band, their live and studio performances, his battle with epilepsy and the emotional turmoil that led to his untimely death. Sam Riley stars in the lead role and Samantha Morton plays his wife Debbie.
Jamie Foxx leads the group that includes Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper and Jason Bateman as they follow the trail of a terrorist with the help of a local officer (Ashraf Barhom). It is directed by Peter Berg and produced by Michael Mann.
