Writer David Kajganich shares five films he referenced for Bones and All. The scope of the list, which spans multiple genres and decades, is a testament to the ambition of the film that he and Luca Guadagnino have made.
It’s a film – and a filmmaker – I love dearly. Michelle Williams plays a woman who’s trying to head up to Alaska, where economic opportunities might be more plentiful. And she ends up waylaid in this town because she has to steal food to feed her dog. She’s separated from her dog. And it’s a very emotionally precise, very observant, tonally very rich film about a few days in the life of this woman who is on her own in America. For obvious reasons, I thought it would be useful as a touchstone to my work while I was writing the script.
