There is both, what comes before and what comes after Bones and All. There is no better way to express this event than what Michael Stuhlbarg‘s character says in the movie. The Call Me By Your Name and Suspiria director Luca Guadagnino has created a visually stunning, sinister, flawed, and twisted film with outstanding performances.
As a coming-of-age teen drama, in the beginning, this film combines several different genres into one. The film’s misleading opening makes it seem like an independent A24 film with Taylor Russell of the popular television show Waves. However, as soon as Maren (Russell) is exposed as a cannibal, the movie immediately descends into darkness.
Bones And All Has An Interesting Plot
As Maren flees the law and runs into love, enemies, and someone from her past, our independent adolescent drama transforms into a road horror film. Maren (Timothée Chalamet), a fellow cannibal whom she interacts with on her journey, meets Lee (David Kajganich), a multi-layered drama with a screenplay that pays off in many ways. Their friendship, which develops as two imperfect, terrifying drifters with a yearning that the audience can never really comprehend, serves as the movie’s heart and soul.
The story told by Guadagnino and Kajganich is incredibly original. Bones And All is an odd road movie with a dark sense of humor. Surprisingly, this is a wonderful tale that, like the movie’s protagonists, might make you feel like throwing up at any time. It enjoys playing with this sinister concept by placing these two lost souls in an intolerant world where they encounter others who are similar to them.
Bones And All shows how cruel some people can be and how love can grow between two individuals who rely on one another despite all that could break them apart. As a result, the movie lacks a sense of urgency for the majority of its running length, alternating between some good and less interesting moments.
