Bones and All
Bones and All gripped me more than any other film this year: Romantic, tragic, haunting, and disturbing. Following two cannibals in love while traveling the American countryside, Bones and All traveled the anxiety of being madly in love while trying to hide the parts of yourself you’re ashamed of. Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell have beautiful chemistry, playing people who care about each other but can’t open up due to their personal demons. Director Luca Guadagnino balances being heartfelt and horrifying brilliantly, as the gore is expertly used to highlight the stakes of love and why they’re so scared of letting the other person in. Bones and All is a beautiful film, even if you may need a special stomach for it.
