All Good Things falls into the tricky subgenre of unsolved crime drama. Whether handled expertly, as in the case of David Fincher’s Zodiac, or sloppily, as in Brian De Palma’s The Black Dahlia, there’s something inherently dissatisfying about these films. Perhaps it’s because, on a primal level, we prefer our monsters caught and killed. Ancient myths were certainly never built on ambiguity and irresolution. Then again, ancient listeners never had the chance to watch a Blu-ray like Magnolia’s All Good Things, which not only includes the speculative story of a possibly monstrous human being, but also a fascinatingly bizarre audio commentary from the possible monster himself, Robert Durst. My review after the jump.
Magnolia has released the trailer for Andrew Jarecki’s All Good Things, which stars Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and Frank Langella. It’s not a bad trailer when you consider that it doesn’t really tell you what the movie is about. All Good Things is based on the true story surrounding the mysterious disappearances of the wife of real estate heir Robert Durst. While I’m not sold on the film as a whole, it looks like it could be a must-see for Gosling’s performance alone.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. All Good Things will be available on VOD on November 5th and opens in theaters on December 3rd.
Magnolia has released the poster for the Andrew Jarecki’s crime drama All Good Things starring Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and Frank Langella. The film is based on the real 1982 mystery revolving around the disappearance of the wife of real-estate heir Frank Durst. In the film, Gosling and Dunst play the Dursts.

With a starring cast of Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and Frank Langella, it would be a shame if Andrew Jarecki’s All Good Things never saw theaters. Thankfully Magnolia Pictures has acquired Jarecki’s follow-up to the acclaimed documentary Capturing the Friedmans (this is his first narrative feature) with an Oscar-tempting December release in mind.
All Good Things is inspired by the life of Robert Durst, the wealthy son of a New York real estate mogul: “Mr. Durst was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in 1982 and was never found.” Hit the jump for the official press release.
At the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, everyone was talking about a movie they couldn’t really talk about. That film, a documentary called Catfish, was later picked up by Rogue Pictures and the trailer just went online.
This is definitely one of those movies that you should know as little about as possible, except this. A New York photographer named Nev Schulman became friends with a family from Michigan when their youngest daughter painted a photo that Nev took. Through the internet, Nev became friends with the mother, dated the sister and was so impressed with the youngest daughter’s paintings that his brother Ariel and friend Henry Joost decided to film the whole thing. Jaw-dropping and heart-wrenching, Catfish was easily one of my favorite films I saw at Sundance this year.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser-iffic trailer, poster, some images and a synopsis, then avoid all spoilers until September 17 when Catfish will finally be released.
AFM* fun continues with the first images and full synopses for All Good Things starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst, Pirhana 3D starring Elisabeth Shue and Richard Dreyfuss, Shanghai starring John Cusack and Ken Watanbe, and The Fighter starring Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg, and Amy Adams. These are all films that should be on your radar because there’s a good chance that these films will be getting some major marketing when they hit theaters.
I write and read about films every day and with the exception of The Fighter, these films weren’t really on my radar. After reading the synopses and seeing some shots from these movies, I’ll definitely be on the lookout for further news about them.
