Synopsis: An A&R man working at the height of the Britpop music craze goes to extremes in order to find his next hit.

Our Thoughts: Kill Your Friends is a slick, black comedy centered on an ambitious man, Steven Stelfox, who works in the music business and will do anything to make it to the top. The film satires the 90’s drug fueled Britpop scene in England and the cut throat record executives of the time.
