Ray Liotta ("Goodfellas") and Willem Dafoe ("Spider-Man 2") lead this all-star cast as two men from opposite worlds trying to come to terms with their troubled past. Liotta plays Lee Ray Oliver, a violent sociopath who is granted a second chance at life when Dr. Copeland (Dafoe), a pioneering scientist, offers him an experimental behavioral drug that promises to suppress his violent nature. When Lee Ray's newfound life begins, he is continually haunted by his murderous past. Searching for redemption, he falls in love with Teresa, his beautiful yet cautious co-worker played by Michelle Rodriguez ("S.W.A.T.," "Girlfight"). Life begins to take on new meaning until the experimental drug starts triggering side effects and Lee Ray's criminal past comes back to life. Will he kill again? Or will he finally gain control?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Control" has an unmistakable pulse: a wiry, electric tension between the extraordinary spectacle of Curtis at maximum surge and the dented ordinariness of which his undear life, like ours, was mostly composed.
Fresh: Though Curtis is hopelessly dysfunctional, photographer-turned-filmmaker Anton Corbijn makes us achingly aware of the singer's talent, the haunting poetry of his songs and how, living in the gloomy culture he did, his passing was virtually inevitable.
Fresh: The extraordinary achievement of Control is that it works simultaneously as a musical biopic and the story of a life.
Fresh: Sam Riley is fascinating as Curtis, a hypersensitive young man hobbled by his incurable disease, and Samantha Morton is poignant as his put-upon wife.
