Great Title Name...and Nothing Else
14 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

I thought with main stream stars like John Laroquette, Julie Benz and Lolita Davidovich in Kill Your Darlings I might be in store for a decent comedy drama. Nothing was further from the truth. The swede Bjorne Lawson both wrote and directed this downer of a movie.

The story is about a few people who are under Dr. Bangley's (played by John Laroquette) psychiatric care. Heck, even Dr. Bangley's own 14 year year old daughter (played by Skye McCole Bartusiak) is in need of some serious therapy but Dr. Bangley just doesn't have any time to spare her while he is peddling his newly released book.

Actor Fares Fares (yes that is his real name) plays a doting absentee father who gets hired as a gun toting hoodlum assigned to take a troubled six foot transvestite and a bored suicidal housewife through the desert on a road trip to eventually meet up with their psychiatrist Dr. Bangley in Las Vegas for his book signing. On a separate journey through the desert we also have Lolita Davidovich who is introduced to us only by the name Lola. Lola hooks up with a depressed and suicidal hamburger photographer (that is his specialty, photographing hamburgers for ad campaigns) named Erik (played by Andreas Wilson) whose real aspiration is to become a serious writer and author. Both Lola and Erik have a few hangups of their own and as they agree to go on a road trip together they commencing sharing their inner feelings and demons while the story becomes more and more surreal and ludicrous.

The road trip of these several characters through the desert is nothing short of boredom. I would have thought troubled people who need the assistance of a psychiatrist would be under medication but all we see and hear is nothing but blather and a very boring story line. If I was forced to watch any more of this film I may have become suicidal myself.

Save your money and your time. This one is not worth watching at all.
