    The result is a potent and provocative movie that will keep you up nights. show more

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

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The result is a queasy combination of speculation and dramatic invention with the ring of half-truth, though the co-stars, Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst, add as much color as they can - not much - to a monochromatic script. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    All Good Things is a "true crime" drama with speculative scenarios and a kind of deliberately murky aura. It's a strange, thrilling tale begrimed by bad memories, by bad deeds. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    The film ends up wrestling itself into a corner, though it's saved by a corrosive central performance from Ryan Gosling and a disconcertingly hypnotic feel. show more

    Despite some choppy transitions and a few melodramatic moments that don't work, the film casts an effective, deepening chill. show more

    What's most surprising, given the latitude provided by all that conjecture, is that the Durst - "David Marks" for the purposes of the film - who emerges is less a character study than a thumbnail sketch. show more

    The film presents the rare instance of a true story that has been fictionalized and yet seems bent on cleaving to its least useful facts. show more

    The key to the film is in the character of David. One can imagine a scenario in which an overbearing father drives the son to rebellion, but what happens here is more complex and sinister. show more

    Though the movie doesn't use real names and the press notes say it's "inspired" by the Durst case, it seems to follow many of the facts rather closely -- all the while mixing in not a little provocative speculation. show more

    Interesting movie, but they did not do their homework on Galveston. Looked more like the Northeast....

    Pretty good! Ryan Gosling did great. He was creepy! Sorry to know its based on a true story. Bad things happen to good people and bad people get the spoils.

    GOD bless that I have HDNET MOVIES on ATT U-verse! I got to see this movie in the comfort of my own home. It was quite entertaining. I must admit I had forgot about Mr. Durst, but living in Houston, Texas when I saw a preview for the movie it all came flooding back. The film started off good and flowed nicely. I was pleased with it in entirety. However, I as a viewer, needed a little more set up inre the initial meeting and building of the relationship between Durst and Kathie. I would not recommend one spend their money to see it in a theater, but HDNET Movies makes it a good evening. 3 out of 5!
