critics consensus

It's well-acted, and the true story that inspired it offers plenty of drama -- which is why it's so frustrating that All Good Things is so clichéd and frustratingly ambiguous. Read critic reviews

    It is curious to see that they changed the names of everyone involved in the Robert Durst case when even the character's sworn statement in court is exactly the same, and this is a dark, heavy drama about how people you think you know can change - or show who they truly are.

    Pretty awful. This film is so incredibly disjointed...I have no idea what direction it's even going in. It's so confusing and stupid. Do not watch this film.

    Based on a true story, All Good Things is a macabre and disturbing film about the dark side of humanity. The story follows David Marks, the son of a New York real estate mogul, who physically and psychologically abuses his wife, and becomes the prime suspect when she mysteriously disappears without a trace. That cast is led by Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and Frank Langella, who all deliver solid performances. But the film's so bleak that it's hard to get invested in. While All Good Things has an interesting story, it's not told in a compelling way.

    "All Good Things" starts with David Marks(Ryan Gosling), under questioning, recalling his memories in 8mm. Of particular interest is when he met Katie(Kirsten Dunst), who has just moved to New York City from Mineola, in 1972 in a valiant attempt to repair her plumbing, before inviting her to a soiree to meet his very disapproving father(Frank Langella). David and Katie quickly fall in love and move to Vermont where they open a health food store but he is lured back to New York by his slumlord father to be a bag man. When asked by Katie, David mentions his firm intention to never have kids. "All Good Things" has certain things going for it like restrained performances and the excellent period detail such as the good old days of 42nd Street. But man is this movie a hard slog to get through, for most of it. Nowhere does it say in depecting a miserable marriage that a movie also has to make the viewer just as unhappy. As inspired by a true story, the screenplay fails to make much of a case, either criminally or behaviorally, as it desperately seeks a simple explanation for David's behavior. Even more problematic than the script is the editing, as the last 30 minutes, bughouse as they are, are the only part that truly comes alive and should have been used as a springboard for briefly recalling David's past life, in a sort of, aren't you the guy whose... ?
