The Beats before they'd learned how to howl in 'Kill Your Darlings' ★★ 1/2
This is economically unfeasible thinking, I realize. But the only way we're ever going to get a great movie about the Beats is if someone makes it like there's nothing to lose, with no concern about whether audiences are going to "get it," or care, or relate, or any of that. None of it. Until then, we'll keep up with all the pretty good tries, like the recent Walter Salles edition of "On the Road." Or fairly good, such as the new "Kill Your Darlings."
