DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

BONES AND ALL - Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross
 
"Guadagnino’s formidable crew deserves credit for shaping the movie’s world too, including Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and regular film composing partner Atticus Ross, who contribute a striking score that imaginatively combines spare acoustic strumming with intense synthesizer blasts. Like 'Bones And All' itself, it’s simultaneously freaky and from the heart in a special, singular way."
 
Brett Buckalew, The Onion AV Club 

"The director tries to fill in the empty spaces where emotional engagement should be with some nice photography and a deluge of music, much of it consisting of an insistently twangy, sub-Sundance faux-folk score that, shockingly, is credited to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The approach might have worked, once. Wim Wenders used to make movies like this in his sleep. But those classic road movies worked because that director (and others who delved into the genre, such as Terrence Malick and Gus Van Sant) clearly shared a fascination with -- and even love for -- the land and the people along the way. It’s hard to sense any similar affection or interest in this world on Guadagnino’s part. The whole film, for all its gore and talk of animalistic abandon, feels like a dutiful, skin-deep pastiche."
 
Bilge Ebiri, New York 
 
"Special notice should go to costume designer Giulia Piersanti, working for the fifth time with Guadagnino, who captures a believable thrift shop glamour for both Russell and Chalamet, while fashioning Rylance into something both creepy and mundane. The Oscar-winning composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, working for the first time with Guadagnino, create a delicate, wistful score, including the tender ballad '(You Made It Feel Like) Home,' which provides a fitting final piece of punctuation."
 
Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times 
 
"'Bones and All' is a period piece, set at some point in the Eighties. Maren drifts silently through the chewed-up parts of America that the decade’s capitalist maximalism feasted on. There are school hallways plastered with vacant paintings of telephone pole landscapes. Morose, red-eyed service workers who seem like they haven’t had a good night’s sleep since they came out of the womb. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s minimalist score hums mournfully in the background like an elegy."
 
Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent 

"Blood pours across gothic mahogany in rooms lined with chintzy floral wallpaper and ’80s tchotchkes, made better still by the film’s stunning sound design. Some scenes bring detached cannibalistic chomping, others have crescendoing winds across American plains. The soundtrack, largely period appropriate and featuring Duran Duran and Kiss, is perfectly utilized throughout. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s track for the film, '(You Made it Feel Like) Home,' punches through, in awful harmony with the haunting tragedy of the film itself."
 
Leila Latif, IndieWire 

"'Bones and All' sees the filmmaker go big – hell, it sees everyone go big, from Rylance’s turbo-charged weirdo to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ wall-to-wall score. The scares are real and lasting, the romantic interludes swoon, and the shots of rugged American grandeur are never too far off.  Even apart from the tonal swings from prairie reverie to epic romance to body horror, the project treats its central conceit with similar 'Why Not Both?' gluttony."
 
Ben Croll, The Wrap
 
"'Bones and All' isn’t another addition to the 'actually about trauma' canon. But for a film that is also about cannibals, 'Bones and All' is far too tame, and too dull, and a chore to sit through. I’m not asking for 'The Green Inferno' or 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre', but it’s a tepid approach to man-eating horror that strips the subgenre of any real, tangible passion (even 'Raw,' a film I am extremely lukewarm on, did this better). Cannibal horror is given a sleek, lifeless arthouse sheen without the texture or pulp it deserves, beautiful but visually unexciting -- which takes away from much of the emotional impact of such a ravenous story. Bones and All is a gorgeous patchwork of rural American landscapes (cinematography credited to Arseni Khachaturan), with a handful of arresting transitions and a score by the powerhouse team of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. But it all feels like a hollow shell harboring little underneath, especially not enough to sustain all 138 minutes."
