Bones and All | Ratings & Reviews

Taylor Russell is captivating and Timothée Chalamet catastrophically alluring in Luca Guadagnino’s artful clash of gory, blood-soaked ferocity and tender teenage love story - restless with hunger, desire and existential horror.

"An extravagant and outrageous movie: scary, nasty and startling in its warped romantic idealism."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"One of the sketchiest, emptiest, most meandering road movies in memory."


"Guadagnino’s seemingly divergent interests in romance and horror have never come together quite so ideally as they do here..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It may not be Guadagnino’s best, but it showcases a director with a unique vision..."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Piercingly romantic and at times gruesome..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"It’s so carefully made, and so lovely to look at, even at its grisliest, that it ends up seeming a little remote, rather than a movie that draws you close."

Time MagazineTime Magazine

"It is wryly funny, gleefully entertaining and oddly touching."

Sight & SoundSight & Sound

"(A) bumbling horror mish-mash."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"For a film that is also about cannibals, Bones and All is far too tame... and a chore to sit through."


"Beneath the viscera and grue is a tender and affecting tale of first love and discovery."

Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting

"If anyone is going to make a cannibal coming of age story work, it’s Luca Guadagnino."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"It’s not the most substantial film Guadagnino’s ever made..."

South China Morning PostSouth China Morning Post

"Cannibalism movies attack the taboo from all different angles, but there are few that tackle the concept with more tenderness and affection..."

Film School RejectsFilm School Rejects

"An exquisite gothic romance in the tradition of Dracula and Frankenstein... It’s a queasy watch but it’s also unexpectedly thought-provoking and even touching."

Financial TimesFinancial Times

"There’s real pleasure in Bones and All, an insistent sweetness that somehow both nourishes and cleanses away the horror."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A born provocateur's faithful ode to a classic cinematic genre..."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"Gritty, lush, sensual..."

"Bones and All proves difficult to watch, but looking away is harder still."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"Imperfect but effortlessly charming..."
