A somewhat flawed yet ultimately satisfying thriller.

The end result is intriguing, with a dash of a love story here and a twisty whodunit there. A fine performance by Ryan Gosling glues the mishmash together.

All Good Things isn't a pleasurable film to experience, but it offers an uncanny evocation of a narcissistic sociopath who doesn't come at us with the charm and sophistication that the typical screen bad guy has.

The Duel drops us into a pool of languid provincial life ( ... ) Kosashvili gets the delicate falling ending of short fiction that is so hard to achieve on screen.

Dunst shines brightly and puts on an acting showcase worthy of awards recognition in the supporting actress category. The picture loses its luster when her character disappears.

While the acting is superb and the film worth viewing, in this odd straddle between fact and fiction, the filmmakers miss the chance to bring more fictive power to the tale.

It's a heavy, moody film, mimicking in its form something of the mental state of its central character, which is a nifty trick.

The unsolved crime turns out to be less mysterious than the mind of the killer, nervily portrayed by Gosling as not evil but unaccountably empty.

It describes a marriage that looks fine at first, but slowly turns into hell. It shows a man who seems pretty normal at first, but who later seems to turn into a psychopathic killer.

Kirsten Dunst is so good here as a woman at a loss to understand who her husband really is, and what the true nature of his family involves.

If you see only one Ryan Gosling movie this holiday season, make it Andrew Jarecki's "All Good Things."

As excellent as Gosling is - and the actor conveys the stillness of the man as well as the voices screaming in his head - Dunst matches him stride for stride.

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 pretty picture or would be if the ominous music and camera position didn't seem directed at the man portentously lurking in the background.
