I had the chance to see Kill Your Darlings at the Tribeca Film Festival today and hear its director talk about the film. As soon as I read the description I wanted to see this - I'm moving to Las Vegas very soon and I love road trips!
Possible spoiler: I was impressed with its hilarious take on our pseudo-celebrity-self-help b.s. phenomenon, and the addiction our culture has on reality TV. The way this thread played out would have been sad if it weren't so funny, yet it never seemed preachy about it. It's hard to even begin talking about suicide and not worry about how everyone will react to it, but I really enjoyed how this film showed how we can find ourselves at an end of a rope and manage to pull ourselves back up rather than hang ourselves with it.
Its depiction of a road trip felt dead-on, The characters were well drawn out and delightful to watch, the scenery was breathtaking, the music was an enhancement, and the story was moving. I loved this film!
