Rob Gretton Sez

From Peter Bradshaw's gushing review of Anton Corbijn's 'Control' in today's Guardian:

Then of course there is his epilepsy: and Control boldly shows Curtis succumbing to a spectacular epileptic episode at the climax of one gig and having to be dragged off stage by mates and crew, who had no idea what to do. "It could be worse," laughs Gretton cheerfully as Curtis lies semi-conscious in his dressing room, "you could be in the Fall." That was the nearest Ian Curtis ever got to therapy."

A line so fine, that I'm surprised it wasn't Paddy Considine's 'Rob Gretton' quipping those words in '24 Hour Party People'.
