(Review) It’s your turn to “Kill your darlings” (2013)


Worth to watch, worth to spend time! 😀

Before you watch this film, please make sure that you are okay to watch all Gay hot scenes. :v If not… please ignore my post too. Thank you. xD

“Kill your darlings” was released in 2013, the film is about the college days in Columbia University of Allen Ginsberg (one of the greatest poets in American history), Lucien Carr, William.S.Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. It lasts nearly about 2 hours, and instead of telling you guys guys about a plot of the movie, which can easily search on Wiki as usual, I want to let you guys know how I had come to this film, and what I have obtained after watching it indeed.

First, I have to confess that I am always interested in homosexual topics, films, dramas and so forth, the reason is very obvious while “the slogan of my life” is “Love has no gender.” and “Gender identity cannot decide who you are.”. I watched many movies such as “Blue is the warmest color, The Danish Girl, Brokeback Moutain, Bloomington, Kill your darlings, etc.” Every movie has its own profound meanings, some also transfer both positive and negative implications to LGBT community. However, the important message is always the same that is “Love is human rights.”


“Kill your darlings” is not only about the one-sided same sex love between Allen Ginsberg and Lucien Carrbut also about the influence of Lucien on Allen’s poems in the early days; and rhythm, meter in English poetry of many greatest poets such as:

“The girl who is bespectacled she may not get her nectacled.
But safety pins and bassinets
Await the girl who fassinets” (Ogden Nash)


Or “to be reborn, you have to die first.” (Yeats’Vision)

And “Wake, melancholy Mother, wake and weep. Quech within their burning bed, thy fiery tears and let thou loud heart keep.” (Shelley’s elegy for Keats)

Thorough the film, Lucien and Allen led viewers with Lucien’s first quotation “Life is always interesting if life is wild.”, for he loved to spend time with “the 1s time best experience.”, “the chaos of youth”, “the passion of making different things” and finale is the “the end of “the party”. Though Lucien was found to be criminal, it was undeniable that the creativity was also created after each of his insurgent actions.

“Some things, once you 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.”


And here are 4 lessons that I have drawn out from this quotation and from the whole entire film.

-We always hurt the one we love the most though we obviously know we shouldn’t at all. That’s the reason love and pain go along together inseparately. What we should do is to face and to deal with all the feelings we got or used to get. It took me almost an hour to sit in front of the screen in order to understand that.

-To all lovers around the universe, though love is bad or good, wrong or right, we used to love “that person” for no reason. Denying is not a good way to solve our problems because we cannot get rid of him or her like we get rid of trash. After any love story ending, the right way to do is to let him or her become our beautiful memories.

-Though youth is an experimentation, you also need to know when to stop, and how to rearrange everything back to the right track.

-Promises shouldn’t be made unless you can make sure you can make it. Don’t give people hopes, and let them live in disappointment then. If there are any bad consequence occurring, affecting to you, or to your loved ones, it’s all your fault, do not try to blame on anyone, or on anything.

That’s all. Now, it’s your turn to “Kill your darlings” :3

P.s: Please forgive me if there’s any grammatical mistakes in my sentences. 😛
