Bones and All (2022)

#13. Bones and All

"Bones and All felt like one of the most real films of 2022, not in the sense of plausibility, but visceral realism.  It inhabits a world we all know too well.  A world that is going by the wayside.  Discarded, and forgotten.  The open country.  The less inhabitable parts of America."

Blood-crossed lovers, akin to Romeo & Juliet, bathed in a warm sense of foreboding and nostalgia.

Bones and All felt like one of the most real films of 2022, not in the sense of plausibility, but visceral realism.  It inhabits a world we all know too well.  A world that is going by the wayside.  Discarded, and forgotten.  The open country.  The less inhabitable parts of America.

Though it went under the radar in a year full of bigger, brighter, and more bombastic films, there was an unflinching sense of horror and violence that I couldn't shake from this film.  Nor was I meant to.
