Today we have a 30-second sneak peek from the trailer or "Kill Your Darlings," starring Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Michael C Hall, Jack Huston, Elizabeth Olsen and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Check it out below.
Plot: An untold story of a murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Huston) and William Burroughs (Foster) at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that led to the birth of an entire generation.
"Kill Your Darlings" is the feature directing debut of John Krokidas. It already premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is now set to hit select theaters on October 18th.
True but before the Howl was published poetry/slash spoken word was dull. The point o their f a poet is to regurgitate their inner monologue down onto paper. His voice for at that time was original. much like beau sia tristan silverman racheal mckibbens and a few other have done today. They all gave the public something new and different. not that I am a fan of the beatnik era but there are a few " points" or events that should be given its respect. The Howl being one of them. In regards to popular culture.

I certainly appreciate your views on poetry, but if I am not emotionally or intellectually moved by a piece of poetry, it has failed it's purpose, even if others are moved. That isn't to say I cannot appreciate a stolid poem on technical merits.
Unfortunately, nothing I have ever read by any of the co-called Beat poets has ever moved me in any way, nor do I see much to appreciate technically, as a majority of what they wrote is, to me, little more than post-modern frustration with an ever increasing scarcity of room for originality, and Howl seems to converge more on the structure of novel while emphatically deviating greatly from that of the pleasant form of most poems.
I'd rather read Russian poetry, which is a lot like that of Klingons, than anything a Beatnik has written.
Yea you cld say I appreciate poetry. Published in the critiphoria. nominated for a soap box award 3 time national slam finalist and rustbelt final stage artist as well. and while I think radcliff is properly casted. This film will fall to the waste side of film. while its an original idea with no waybto pop a sequel or prequel out of it. This is a film so posers can but it in their collection to look cultured. should have been made into a series. seems like a better fit. especially since Dexter & Breaking Bad are ending. And speaking of good literature. I just finished Hess's Sidartha. Took awhile since I kept getting caught up in the moment. lol
