extremely cliche, poor direction and screenplay, good performances
Inspired by the most notorious missing person's case in New York history, ALL GOOD THINGS is a love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s.
well i saw this movie which is based on a true story of unsolved murder case. its a drama thriller with romance of course. i was not expecting much from this movie when i saw it receiving not so good reviews. the only reason of watching this movie was seeing these two actors, the hot and handsome Ryan Gosling and the beautiful and gorgeous Kristen Dunst after a long time. well this movie turns out to be extremely CLICHE.
Its so Cliche, i mean i felt i have seen movies like it before, story was very Cliche. that thing does not effects me much for a movie because that is not the problem with me, i don't think that on certain plot if a movie is being made then there shouldn't be another one like it. i always find some difference and some new things in it and even if i mention it being Cliche, it doesn't effects the rating. but this movie was pretty average.
its all that a girl (poor one) meets a very attractive handsome rich man, falls in love then marry either way. things start to get little weird and strange day bu day, girl star finding secrets about the family, that handsome looking guy actually turns out to be a psycho man and he always loose control and beat and torture his wife, she separates, then he kills her. it was pretty much like it. but the few things that makes it somewhat different is that its based on a true story, the girl is actually missing not considered dead, which means the end. end of the movie is what makes it pretty different from other movies like it.
movies starts somewhat slow, takes sometime to develop and then everything just come rushing, everything start happening so fast which is a negative point and it seriously annoys me. towards the end it has some pretty shocking, mysterious and thrilling moments that are pretty good to watch. its actually a narrative movie, Ryan at his present old age is shown saying the story to the Court.
acting wise pretty good i will say, its the only positive point, Ryan Gosling did a fantastic job again, he is very good in his character. towards the end his strange Woman get up and that psycho killer thing was done very well by him. on the other hand Kristen Dust was awsome too. she played her character pretty good.
screenplay of this movie is very dull and much in places pretty hollow, story is not narrated in a right way. movie is very empty and lost in places. i even didn't felt much connected to the characters as well. direction is pretty weak as well. so i will say to AVOID IT.
