All Good Things

Rated R 101 minutes 2009

"I've never been closer to anyone, and I don't know you at all," a young woman (Kirsten Dunst) tells her creepy, remote husband (Ryan Gosling) in this strange and purposely frustrating crime drama. Director Andrew Jarecki made a name for himself with Capturing the Friedmans (2003), an investigative documentary about a Long Island family mired in a sex-abuse scandal, and this second feature, though fiction, proceeds from a similar impulse: it's based on the true story of New York real estate developer Robert Durst, whose wife disappeared in 1982, and Jarecki conducted many interviews with people connected to the case. The movie implies that Durst murdered his wife, but 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. With Frank Langella, Kristen Wiig, and Philip Baker Hall.
