Bones and All Review:
bones and all is a movie you probably never thought you needed to see, but you’ll probably be glad you did. Nothing for weak nerves, Luca Guadagninos adaptation of Camille DeAngelis’ Roman doesn’t pull any punches and puts the audience right at the forefront of some pretty gory scenes.
If you don’t like blood or guts…or like to see humans devouring human guts, then this probably isn’t for you. But beyond the squeamish and sometimes sickening depictions of cannibalism is a wistful love story with some pretty sights and sounds.
Timothy Chalamet does a convincing job like lee that it is almost impossible to imagine who else could have played the role and Taylor Russells Maren is credible, impressive and clearly deserves it Marcello Mastroianni Prize.
Mark Rylances Sully is equally captivating and disturbing and Chloe Sevigny delivers the goods in her brief but powerful performance as Maren’s mother.
So much more than just a gory teen movie bones and all is a heart (and blood and guts) coming-of-age romance that’s definitely worth a look…if you can take it.
Yes, Bones and All may keep you from your dinner date, but it certainly won’t leave you dissatisfied.
