Kill Your Friends
Directed by Owen Harris
As the twentieth century breathes its very last, with Britpop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox (Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through London’s music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit—fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of drugs and alcohol—Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast, the hits are drying up, and the only way he’s going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of “cutthroat” to murderous new levels.
With Britpop at its zenith, someone is slashing and burning his way through London’s music industry.

American Psycho but with more murder. I appreciate that they don't even attempt to make the mc likeable nor excuse any of his actions. He's a horrible person and the movie just lets him be a horrible person.
This film was fun for a watch. Definitely has "black comedy thriller" aspects and lots of eye candy. The drug and alcohol use was excessive and unrealistic. As if they made it to work the next day...
I had a hard time making it through this one. While the acting was good and there were a few humorous parts, it really left a lot to be desired. Mainly in the killing category.
It was okay Nicholas Holt was good
A really smart A & R guy would have invented a TV show called The X Factor.
