_Bones and All_ is one of the most unique movies I have ever seen. It somehow simultaneously disgusts me while filling me with intense emotion capable of drawing tears to my eyes. It is a perfect blend, that I was unaware that I needed.
The journey our characters take in immense in terms of emotion and distance. I had such a great time watching our leads travel across country going wherever their hearts desired or wherever their noses took them. There were some creepy and intense encounters that had me on the edge of my seat but that was balanced with intimate moments between our leads. These scenes fill the majority of the 2 hour and twenty-minute runtime, and while that is a decently long film, it flew by, and the pace never seemed to lull. There were some scenes that could have been cut to save some time, but I argue that they were essential for character development and to make the film whole.
Throughout the course of the runtime there are intense introspective themes of morality that are at constant play. Watching the characters balance desire and need was so heartbreaking and real. Despite the horrific acts our main characters are performing, there is a deep hidden shame that seeps out as our character learns more and more about what she is.
These are very complex emotions to handle on screen and our two leads absolutely nailed it. Both Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet were brilliant! I will be honest, Timothée Chalamet is one of the big reasons why I wanted to see this movie so much and while he did an excellent job, he was outshined by Taylor Russell. She was so excellent, honestly perfect! This is the first film I have seen her in, and I was blown away. She deserves all the award recognitions for this film.
Bones and All is a masterpiece and needs to be seen in theaters. This is a hard movie to sell to an audience, but it was done perfectly and deserves all the credit, awards, and viewership.

“Bones and All holds committed, chemistry-filled performances from Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet, telling a complex, interpretive story about true love and what we really need to survive.
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross’ score shines and is the work’s greatest chance of receiving an Oscar nomination, taking into account the shocking approach to cannibalism – it partially affects the connection with the protagonists – and horror aspects.
A thought-provoking screenplay by David Kajganich and unrestrained direction by Luca Guadagnino elevate a film that deserves to be seen – and felt – on the big screen.”
Horror meets poetry
Before I start this review, I have to admit I have a soft spot for Luca Guadagnino and his directing style, which really speaks to me on an emotional level.
The movie is not perfect, but I enjoyed watching it, as to me this mixture of gory horror and on the road romance is quite new.
The plot is quite thin and the pace of the movie is slow and indefinite, but to me this is not negative: in the two hours of screentime I was never bored, and I sort of felt like I was on the road along with the protagonists.
The lead actors were really good, and in my opinion this was one of the best performances by Timothée Chalamet, whose chemistry with Guadagnino is undeniable. I think he was particularly suited for this role, because his innocent face and body perfectly communicated the nature of his character, conflicted between his monstrous instincts and his good heart.
The best performance was anyway delivered by Mark Rylance, whose creepy character Sully was great for keeping the tension high throughout the whole movie.
I really loved the poetic atmospheres of the road trip scenes, so typical of Guadagnino.
The negative aspects that can’t be denied are the poor development of the characters, which makes it hard to root for them, and the quality of the dialogues, which are often shallow.
Personally I didn’t appreciate the ending scene and the related dialogue especially.
Despite some negative specs, I would absolutely suggest seeing it, if you don’t mind some pretty gory scenes.
An absolutely awful adaptation of a good story
Why Luca, why? Why would you decide to make this beautiful and haunting story into such a bore of a film? Way too artsy for it’s own good, missing most everything that made the book exciting and fresh, and pulling the punches when it really needed it, this film ends up being a complete dud. I have to give it up to the three leads, they do a good job with the script they were given. Too bad the script they were given is a watered down version of what is a gut wrenching (literally) love story. Also, I must mention, what a waste to cast Chloe Sevigny and give her a role that is utterly beneath her acting ability. She’s basically reduced to a very brief cameo for seemingly no reason at all. The films only saving grace is the beautiful cinematography and the acting ability of the lead actors, but it is not enough to save this adaptation. I’m actually surprised considering how well Luca Guadagnino has handled other films with source materials, aka Call Me By Your Name and Suspira. Unfortunately, he just could not pull this one off and the film is as cold as a dead fish in the water. The audience I had to share this movie with felt practically the same way I did. Lots of comments such as “That was it?”, “What was the point of any of that?” or, my personal favorite, the couple still sleeping in the chairs next to me when the film ended. Overall, I could not recommend this movie to anyone. It’s dull, boring and nothing like the book of the same title. For a film about cannibalism, it pulls way too many punches and doesn’t go far enough to really show the characters moral struggle with herself, unlike the book. I bet when the author sees this film, she’s going to be not so pleased and possibly insulted that her source material was practically regurgitated in such a way. Basically, my suggestion would be read the book instead. You’ll find it far more enjoyable than this drivel!
