"All Good Things" is a love story and murder mystery based on the most notorious unsolved murder case in New York history. The original screenplay uses newly discovered facts, court records and speculation as the foundation for an imaginative spellbinding story of family, obsession, love and loss.
Does not include this film.
The story of billionaire and property heir, Robert Durst, is a fascinating one full of twists and unresolved questions which makes this loose retelling of his life and possible murder of his wife all the more disappointing. All Good Things, named after the health food shop the pair opened in the ‘70s, is little more than a TV crime-movie-of-the-week with an A-list cast as Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst struggle to elevate the lacklustre material.
Gosling stars as David Marks (the film remains reasonably faithful to the events but still changes the character names), a troubled man who is heir to a New York property fortune. He marries a young student (Dunst) before she goes missing in 1982 under dubious…
Truth is stranger than fiction, so it's nearly impossible to cram the bizarre facts of Robert Durst's now infamous life into a feature-length drama that doesn't seem needlessly convoluted and unbelievable (even with an "inspired by real events" promise).
So now this dramatization exists as an inessential but interesting companion piece to The Jinx that doesn't totally stand up on its own.
Gosling, Dunst, Langella, this could have been so much better. Mystery, conspiracy and intrigue galore as this take on the life of accused murderer Robert Durst is brought to the screen. Name changes and some very ambiguous overtones provide just enough detail to hook you in. Gosling's mentally unstable protagonist is just that, a nutter. Cross-dressing, killing pooches and numerous others misdemeanors show Gosling as yet again very flexible. Miles away from a heartthrob, this is another of those roles he seems especially keen to do. Outsiders displaying fragile cracks in their psyche and in this case with homicidal tendencies, Gosling does like complex characters.
Set in the seventies with more twists than a pretzel factory, this does need concentration.…
... come to an end. And I wish this movie would have ended sooner, because this is really really bad.
It starts off OK , and I say OK in relation to how it all turns into a hell of a mess. But our love couple never gets lovable, and Ryan Gosling's character David has at least 3 totally different personalities throughout the film without me getting a real grip of why. And the only thing that's "spellbinding" about the story is how they could make it this uninteresting. It didn't bore me though, the slow pace was quite nice and the performances are solid. But it was, what can I say? ... Stupid. Yeah, that's the word I'm looking for. And ugly. It was really ugly looking.
Well, there you have it. A really stupid review. Now I can leave this film behind me and move on.
I finished The Jinx earlier and thought why not check out the fictional film also directed by Andrew Jarecki based on the life of Robert Durst? Here he's called David Marks and played by Ryan Gosling. Compared to the real life Durst that I just saw extensively interviewed for five hours, Gosling's portrayal doesn't seem quite as cold or timid, though most of the film is set during Marks/Durst's younger years which The Jinx didn't cover too much. He's clearly got problems, likely stemming from the fact that he saw his own mother commit suicide, but the film seems to try and tie up his issues too neatly, as if simply witnessing that moment alone made him become a possible…
ryan really scared me in this. durst scares me
This is an odd movie! I don't know if I would have liked it better or worse if I had seen it BEFORE watching The Jinx. Either way it's pretty fucked up!
It lacks intensity but Frank Langella and Kirsten Dunst are worth it.
Es una película bastante entretenida. El problema que he encontrado es que hay cosas que quedan sin explicar. Me he quedado un poco incompleta.
Started a couple days ago but just finished. This film just made me feel incomplete? What the fuck happened?
Why would Durst want Jarecki to do a documentary about him after seeing this movie? Does Durst think he comes across as sympathetic here? How big of a narcissist do you have to be to think that? What the actual fuck
#322 ALL GOOD THINGS - A competent dramatization, but made obsolete by Jarecki’s later (better) work #DLMChallenge #366Movies #366Days ★★★ 🛬
Ah so that's the story of this durst character. Not a bad little movie. Dunsts and Gosling are both great.
Simply ridiculous. How many more 'jump!' moments could they have crammed into the last 10 minutes of the film? It's not like anything unexpected is happening.
Complete list. :-(
