"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.
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…
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.
Just another example of how men & the constructions of men without fail demolish women's lives!!!
This was average I guess.
There were a couple of things that I liked. Mainly Ryan and Kirsten Dunst's performances, and a couple of interesting things.
But with some solid potential, this could have been something a little more interesting.
Instead it felt rather dull with not much compelling things going on. Plus Ryan was looking weird with that make up on him.
I don't care, whatever.
every time someone said david i thought of david pumpkins
Kind of boring and obvious. Which is crazy since it's based on a true story, apparently. I'm annoyed that the Netflix synopsis gives away details that don't come up until past halfway through the movie. Not the best look for Ryan Gosling and I prefer him in likable characters. I can't believe the end of the movie is just like "yeah he lives in Florida now"
"What the hell are you looking at? Eat your salad." Besides that perfect line you should go watch the documentary series about the real guy called The Jinx instead.
C'est certain qu'après avoir vu The Jinx, ça perd un peu de son intérêt....
RON SWANSON WITHOUT A MUSTACHE.....that should say enough
Thriller basado en el famoso caso del millonario Robert Durst, principal sospechoso de la muerte de 3 personas, incluidas su ex-esposa, una amiga cercana y su compañero de edificio.
La película es buena gracias a las interpretaciones de Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst y Frank Langella, además de mantener buena tensión mezclando las diferentes épocas y soltándonos poco a poco la información para que vayamos sacando nuestras conclusiones.
Si hay algo que reconocerle al director Andrew Jarecki es su tenacidad, ya que desde este momento se enfocó en el caso de Durst, logrando en 2015 sacar una miniserie con HBO, la cual ayudó a la captura de este infame personaje.
I feel like I've seen this poster for longer than I've been alive.
