“An expressive, jazzy and ambitious movie. Sexually alive and yearning. Daniel Radcliffe is fearless and full of vitality. Dane DeHaan is hot and dangerous.” —Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
“Radcliffe and Foster are remarkably convincing, as is Dane DeHaan…a haunting noir-derived depiction of male bonding and psychosexual obsession.” —Amy Taubin, Film Comment
“The enormously talented DeHaan is a febrile, magnetic presence.” —Hollywood Reporter
“Kill Your Darlings is the real deal… a story perfectly of its time and yet one that still resonates today.” —Damon Wise, The Guardian
