I’m curious to see how many people will be turned off by this description alone – a cannibal love story. Yes, that sounds utterly ridiculous, but I guess human flesh-eaters need love too. “Bones and All” is the latest film from Luca Guadagnino, and it stars Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet. If I’m honest, the two leads don’t really excite me. Russell wasn’t great in the two “Escape Room” movies (but how much of that was horrible material?). And while I know this is considered sacrilege, I like Chalamet’s work more than I love it. But I’ll give the pair this, they’re really going for it here.
“Bones and All” follows two lovers with a shared fondness for eating people as they make a road-trip across America during the 1980s. The new trailer shows the film to be a queasy mix of romance and horror all with Leonard Cohen’s “You Want It Darker” bopping in the background. Most attractive is the interesting supporting cast that includes Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon Green, and Jessica Harper among others. This looks like a movie with a lot of potential to go either way.
“Bones and All” hits theaters November 23rd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
I saw this trailer yesterday and… oh hell yeah. I want to see this as it just looks awesome. Plus, with NIN doing the score. I’m fucking in.
I am really interested to see how it turns out. I hope it’s more than a gimmick. I’m pretty optimistic.
LOL. Completely understandable.
I’ll wait for a review before deciding!
I completely understand. It’s such a weird sell, isn’t it?
Looks intriguing. No doubt it will have plenty of gore but if it sticks to more story than slaughter this seems like it might be a good one.
I honestly don’t know what to expect from it. It looks weird but in a good way. It also looks like a message movie which means it could go any way.
Well, that’s the perfect bring-the-family-to-the-movies for Thanksgiving flick! Pass.
LOL! Your sarcasm landed very well. 🙂
