Critic Reviews of "Kill Your Darlings"Time OutDecember 02, 2013
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 voiceSt. Louis Post-DispatchNovember 26, 2013
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.Detroit NewsNovember 22, 2013
You don't need to know the Beats to understand "Kill Your Darlings," you just need to know the twinkling promise, and dark turns, of life.Seattle TimesNovember 14, 2013
Overall the movie seems to wander, like the worst excesses of free verse, needing a little structure to rein it in.Minneapolis Star TribuneNovember 14, 2013
"Kill Your Darlings" is a true-crime murder mystery, a love letter to the wild-living artists of the Beat Generation, and a portrait of the artist as an adolescent.Miami HeraldNovember 14, 2013
Dramatizing a passion for the written word on film can be tricky, but in his feverish Kill Your Darlings, first-time director John Krokidas brings creative desire to life with vigor and emotion.Adelaide ReviewAugust 10, 2016
Krokidas' film takes a wisely neutral view of the tale, meaning that we get to both revel in the lads' transgressions and see how all this indulgence can turn sour.New Zealand HeraldMay 20, 2016
The sensual chemistry between Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan is fantastic, just occasionally upstaged by Ben Foster, who does a great job capturing the voice and mannerisms of the dry Burroughs.In These TimesApril 12, 2016
Beat movies are just a sign that a new wave of such whiners has arrived to see them, and, because movies take years to make, is probably already progressing beyond the adolescent obsessions that the moviemakers thought to capitalize on.Birmingham MailOctober 10, 2014
Few [Harry] Potter fans will be tempted to chance their luck while most adults will be left with fearsomely bright but relatively unlovable characters.ArtforumOctober 01, 2014
The best thing about the enthralling, super-smart Kill Your Darlings is director John Krokidas's ability to capture the excitement of young men's minds on fire.TV GuideOctober 01, 2014
Kill Your Darlings is by no means perfect, but it's an ambitious and promising first film that gives a handful of young actors the chance to work with a director who has a great deal on his mind.
