Slant Magazine
An overmatched star and a scarcity of eccentricity sink this hip-lit origin story from director John Krokidas. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Mr. Krokidas deftly shows how the ambition to write is entangled with other impulses. Full Review
Bob Mondello
They flail and they thrash, and Krokidas' film is just like them — as jazz-inflected and freewheeling as the Beat poetry these guys were about to unleash on the world. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Far more coherent than last year's aimless "On the Road" and more sharply focused than 2010's "Howl," it centers on a youthful Ginsberg finding his nascent artistic voice. Full Review
Damon Wise
The Guardian
Though it begins as a murder-mystery, Kill Your Darlings may be best described as an intellectual moral maze, a story perfectly of its time and yet one that still resonates today. Full Review
