DVD Review: All Good Things

Disappointing.

David Marks (Ryan Gosling) falls in love with Katie. (Kirsten Dunst) At first, they seem like a good fit for each other. Sure David's family sees Katie as something lesser, but as time goes on we being to see juts how unhealthy this relationship is. When Katie mysteriously disappears, David becomes a suspect.


I didn't know this movie was based on a true story before I watched it. In retrospect having the guy the movie is based on, and who you so blatantly accuse of being the killer on set and providing commentary is a little tacky in my opinion. Come to think of it, this entire movie was a disappointment. Kirsten Dunst turns in a hell of a performance, much like she did in the equally horrible Melanchalia. It's a shame that she's so good when the rest of the film does nothing to help her. The pacing is horrible. The first half spends all it's time on David and Kate's relationship before they had problems, then when it comes to the disappearance, it's rushed. I feel like that should've been the most important part of the film. The transition was horrible.

Recommended: Yes - if you're a big Dunst fan - No for everything else.

Grade: D

Memorable Quote: "I miss her so much." - David Marks (Ryan Gosling)
