Critic Reviews for Kill Your Darlings
Foster is wonderful as the watchful, weak Burroughs, at ease only when drugged, with a mouth like a cat's bum. But DeHaan is even better.
Revealing about the role played by violence, shame and denial at the birth of beat and of Ginsberg's career.
A kaleidoscopic historic present of youthful horseplay, frenzied ambitions for revolutionising the world of art and ideas, and polymorphous teenage desire.
Daniel Radcliffe is back in a pair of nerdy specs as Allen Ginsberg in this sincere, heartfelt film about how the gay beat poet found his voice
Bursting with hipster attitude and New York atmosphere, the fact-based "Kill Your Darlings" is a coming-of-age chronicle that morphs into a crime story without missing a beat.
Audience Reviews for Kill Your Darlings
A very engaging biopic, even more for those acquainted with these Beat Generation poets but not with this early event in their lives involving a decisive murder - and Radcliffe and DeHaan shine with a surprising chemistry together, leading a great ensemble cast.
A decent drama with some performance from Daniel Racliffe and Dane DeHaan about this finding yourself movie, the story itself is quite interesting and they had a lot potential from the actors with Michael C. Hall brings the best performance from this movie while Dane DeHaan definitely look desirable in this movie.. Overall, I like it but it just kinda boring..
A flawed if interesting account of the Beat Generation and how Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe) is entranced by one of his classmates named Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) and how the two meet with other gifted writers such as William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (John Huston). Unfortunately, this movie's very detached and seemingly rushed screenplay mean that you have little to connection to the characters and the decisions they make, even if they can rattle off brilliant poetry at the flip of a switch. Radcliffe struggles convincing the audience that he is a young Ginsberg, while on the other hand DeHaan steals the show in a sure to be star making performance. This is really a melodrama at heart, and the way it is written and choreographed hints at being something special at times, but ultimately falls short of such expectations due to being in such a hurry to get to where it wants to go. Not bad, but not great either.
