Cynical and brilliant movie
17 March 2016 | by carfan724See all my reviews

I wasn't even sure if watching this movie is a good idea. But not trusting in the IMDb points proved me right once again. Kill your friends builds up the dramaturgy to a certain point, never getting too abstract or unrealistic. I have spent way too much time in London and in London's clubs and pubs to find the abuse of alcohol or cocaine unrealistic. And that was 2015. I couldn't imagine the music business in the 80s and 90s. On top of the storyline comes a brilliant cast. Nicholas Hoult is unexpectedly brilliant. I only knew him from warm bodies but this is a big leap in his acting. One of my favorite films until now in 2016.

Sorry for the bad English.
