Even though it's slightly too mannered, this true drama takes a clever approach to the beat poets long before they were famous. It's also packed with shocking twists and unnerving details that help us get emotionally involved in the story. And while the complexity of the approach kind of leaves us on the outside, sensitive performances help us see beneath the surface.
Set in 1943, the film centres on Allen Ginsburg (Radcliffe), who has been encouraged by his poet father (Cross) and needy mother (Leigh) to attend Columbia in New York. There he befriends the transgressive writer Lucien Carr (DeHaan), whose secret mentor-boyfriend David (Hall) is actually writing his coursework. Through Lucien, Allen is introduced to the druggy lifestyle of intense artist William Burroughs (Foster) and rugged womaniser Jack Kerouac (Huston). And together they decide to change the world. Then a shocking murder alters the dynamic between these young men.
The film's title is age-old advice to artists: you have to get rid of the people closest to you if you want to truly express yourself. And of course the fatal plot twist is an ironic exploration of this idea, as the film delves into shadowy corners of artistic anarchy, drug use and sexuality. (Radcliffe's notorious gay sex scene is strikingly well-played and pivotal in Allen's journey.) Filmmaker Kokidas infuses each scene with dark artistry: the actors look achingly cool even when they're wallowing in a trashy, immaculately production-designed drug den.

Kill Your Darlings is the previously untold story of friendship, jealousy, genius and murder that sparked the literary revolution of the 1940's. Kill Your Darlings follows the story of: Allen Ginsberg, Lucien Carr, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs, the four great poets of the Beat Generation and how they were all implicated by the brutal murder of David Kamerer.
Allen Ginsberg must decide whether to use his literary skills to clear his friends name or to reveal what he believes to be the truth in this biographical thriller.
Based on true events, Kill Your Darlings has been nominated for the Grandy Jury Prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and is the directorial debut from John Krokidas winner of the 'Director to Watch' at the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival.
Allen Ginsberg is a Beat Generation writer, with no idea that his venture to New York to attend Columbia University will hold more than just a promising future career-wise. It's there that he meets Lucien Carr; a slightly unhinged but ambitious, intelligent and extremely good looking fellow student who enjoys wild partying with his wealthy friend William Burroughs and, later, Jack Kerouac. As Allen and Lucien become closer, the latter's much older friend - a professor named David Kammerer - becomes increasingly jealous, threatening Allen who discovers that he has been following Lucien from city to city over a few years. Although Allen insists that they must find a way to prevent this incessant stalking, he is deeply shocked when David's body is discovered in the Hudson River, with Lucien held as prime suspect for stabbing him to death. Allen now faces a dilemma; to either use his skills in writing to make sure his friend is liberated, or reveal what he now believes is the truth to all.

Mrs Bacon was chopping up some Kale, a 'superfood' lauded for its health properties, which ironically here seems to have done more damage than good, with 47 year-old Kyra missing the curly green leaf and instead slicing into her own flesh.
Kyra Sedgwick, wife of actor Kevin Bacon, sliced the tip of her finger off on Saturday night (29th June 2013). She was, according to Bacon who posted pictures of her injury online, in the process of cutting kale when she obtained the injury.
