Kill Your Darlings – movie review

Hola everyone.

Today I’d like to present you another movie I recently watched. And trust me, you’re going to love it just as much as me.


The movie is called Kill Your Darlings and I’d say that it’s a really really special one. It’s about the famous poet Allen Ginsberg and his time in college. The story follows his path through college, while he’s meeting new people and making friends. This is also when he meets Lucien Carr, who shows him the crazy side of life and poetry and together they plan to change the world and break the rules to make it better. But then something really bad happens and everything seems to break apart. Allen is the one who could either solve everything or make it even worse.


Exciting, right? I especially liked the way how the movie works. It’s really artsy and full of aesthetic and poetry an philosophy and dreams, with special people who do all the things others are too afraid for. And also the actors are amazing – Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg and Dane DeHaan as Lucien Carr. And I have to say that Dane is really really crushworhty, for real. And it’s crazy that he’s already 30, while still looking all young and hot. And they both are breathtaking and perfect for their roles. And lets say, they work better together than I first thought.


I also loved how the story is based on true events, on a true human being. And the quotes, oh my god the quotes. There is one that I can say has become one of my most favorite quotes ever:

Allen Ginsberg: Some things, once you’ve loved them, become yours forever./And if you try to let them go… They only circle back and return to you. They become part of who you are…

Lucien Carr: …or they destroy you.


How beautiful is that? It makes me want to fall in love and write a sad book about sad love at the same time. So intense and fascinating.


Overall, I really really really enjoyed watching this ,movie and I’m happy that movies like that exist, because they are really special and those you’ll probably never forget. So I can just highly recommend it to all of you guys. Oh, and if you’re interested, here’s the trailer. If any of you want to talk about the movie or anything else, I’m here. And until then, enjoy the movie and I hope you enjoyed this post. Oh, and as always, thanks for reading. x
