    Control, by Anton Corbijn

    Just went to see the Montréal premiere of Control, about Joy Division and Ian Curtis, and it's AWESOME! Gorgeous cinematography, and really good acting. I've always been a Joy Division fan, and it was as close as I could imagine about being in a show.

    The only thing is, I was perplexing myself throughout the movie: did they shoot on real B&W or did they desaturate color stock? The blacks had a slightly greenish tinge, which I'm tempted to equal with silver, but I can't be sure...
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Now the trick is to get back to a civilised place asap and see the movie.

    It was shot on Kodak colour neg Vision2 5217 200T
    It went to a digital internegative where the desaturation was done & was then printed to colour film for release, which would explain the cast you saw.

    I got this from a thread at cinematography.com
    They tested B&W film but the grain was too heavy.

    Great, thanks for the thread link! The last B&W movie I saw was "Les amants réguliers", a French film about Mai 68, and it was definitely shot on real B&W (some of the stock was ORWO). The grain was very large, and it was rather mesmerizing to see the constant shifting clumps of graininess as the image moved.
