Fortunately the director has the services of Kirsten Dunst, who delivers a skillfully naturalistic performance as the doomed wife, who by default becomes the movie's emotional focus.

It's a strange, thrilling tale begrimed by bad memories, by bad deeds.

Dunst is not the only person doing quality work in "All Good Things," but she is the only one worth watching.

You watch it wanting to scurry off to read accounts of the real thing, rather than being caught up in the filmmaking.

As fiction, it would be merely dull. But the movie purports to be based on fact, and its amateur psychoanalyzing feels insufficient, intrusive, speculative, self-serving.

beneath the surface are all kinds of questions about power and wealth and the cyclical nature of familial tragedy, and while they break through from time to time, it is never enough to give the film more depth than a TrueTV documentary

Andrew Jarecki makes the leap from documentary to feature film and his lack of experience in directing actors shows

Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst are excellent...(The film) is thoroughly engrossing but somewhat frustrating in the end.

Quotidian, emotionless storytelling.

As absorbing and detailed as "All Good Things" is, it never manages to levitate beyond tawdry movie-of-the-week voyeurism.

All Good Things is a terrible miscalculation, one that should have been, given his history, glaringly obvious to its director. If this film had been made as a traditional documentary, this would likely be a very different review.

The performances offer much to admire, while the story fails to provide the chilling intensity it so clearly wants to generate.

The script draws insistently obvious psychological connections.

Gosling is given the barest blueprint of a life gone terribly wrong and the actor struggles to make something out of nothing, though he does manage to give the older David an aura of weirdness that is downright creepy.

It's difficult, ultimately, to discern the point of the movie, other than to comment on how depressing and futile it all is.

Ambiguous, ineptly fictionalized psychological thriller that doesn't ring true, leaving the audience emotionally detached and disappointed.

A soap opera that stands at a distance from its characters (that distance being the length of a lawyer's briefcase)

It devolves into a misshapen flop with no shape to the narrative and no larger truths to be gained.
