Well made movie but I didn't care about the two main characters. In something that's supposed to be a love story that's a pretty big flaw.

I can watch a whole movie about Sully.

an interesting premise for a flick, with a couple shortcomings (in my eyes).
i'm a big fan of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' work, but the heavily acoustic OST felt a little 'off' to me. for such a recurring motif, i would have preferred a more electronic sound, or strings, or piano, or even choir vocals (like at the very end).
i felt that Maren's character development was rather wildly inconsistent, too — i couldn't tell if she was supposed to be a weird, shy girl who knows little about the world, or a bold, take-charge, "give no shits" one. she seems to flip-flop quite heavily between the two, in a way that made her hard to fully grasp.
(i will say, the Leon character actually did grow on me after a while, but his introduction was a bit awkward and ... well, cringe. i'm not the biggest fan of Chalamet's acting, and I think he was the weakest link among the cast.)
overall, a very visually-beautiful watch with a lot of really nice shots, some poignant scenes, and solid acting. part of me wishes there had been a more in-depth exploration of the sexual themes of the film, which are hinted at, but carefully skirted around.

An unexpected RomHor
I liked the style and it was original enough to keep me watching, but I dont like gore. Luckily there wasn't that much horror movie cliches in here. A sentimental piece about finding out who you are, coming of age and finding romance in the mess.

Such a step down from Call Me By Your Name that I find it hard to believe it's even the same director. CMBYN felt like a film for adults while this one seemed like it was targeting teenagers.

Imagine a follow-up to Call Me By Your Name and it's a teen cannibal romance. Luca Guadagnino brings back Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg, but not Armie Hammer (he must have been sore) for Bones and All, a vampire with the numbers filed off, which put me in mind of Stephen King except that it was Southern Gothic (which admittedly moved off the area and even went to Maine). It's Guadagnino, so it's all very sensitive and psychological despite the buckets of gore, and both Taylor Russell and Chalamet are up for it. But while there's a metaphor at work here - the hunger of youth, of wanting to absorb everything while you can, selfishly perhaps (which some never let go of, apparently, and that makes them diseased) - the theme of family is more present and up front. Russell's character is one seeking family, a sense of belonging, and therefore questions more readily the ethics of eating, with particular attention to the victims' families. So we really need the metaphor because murder is obviously bad. We can feel for these kids and their unnatural impulses, but it's an intellectual problem because born cannibals are a fiction. And what they stand in for is rather vague to me.

Teen romance with a touch of Cannibalism. It would be better with less kissing and more gore but target audience is Timothée Chalamet loving girls so don't expect much.
