Okay, let's forget the end which sort of fizzled out, on the whole the film was FANTASTIC. The acting, the suspense, the chemistry, a true psychological thriller!

The beginning (rich boy and average girl falling in love, getting married) was fast-paced and involving, and then, the strange things started to happen. I thought the building up of something unknown and malicious was very cleverly done, the wickedness of David Marks, brilliantly portrayed by Ryan Gosling, was palpable. Of course we never know did he, did he not, of course we are not sure if he is crazy or if the world is playing a joke on him, but one thing is clear - Ryan Gosling is one brilliant actor - the scenes where he plays a woman are a punch to your stomach!

And Kirsten Dunst, she plays her role so well, she effortlessly and so believably portrays a woman confused to comprehend who her husband truly is. And who is David Marks (a character based on a suspect in one of the most notorious missing person case of the New York history, still unsolved)?

Recommended, if you love psychological thrillers, eerie films based on real stories and/or Ryan Gosling.

Throughout this film I kept wondering, "Just who is this family? What is this all about?" 'All Good Things' is a story taken from true life. A wealthy real estate dealer and his two sons live in a large mansion in Long Island. It appears the mother committed suicide, and one would surmise that one reason is the father Sanford Marks, played by Frank Langella.. A mean often vicious man who always gets what he wants, no overtly physical abuse, but plenty of emotional abuse is apparent.

David Marks, played by Ryan Gosling, the younger son seems meek and mild and has no interest in his father's family business. He meets a young woman Katie, played by Kirsten Dunst, they marry, go off to Vermont and set up an organic food store, 'All Good Things', where they are very happy. Enters dad, telling them he will no longer support this lifestyle and they move back to New York. It is here that things fall apart. David is lifeless and listless, Katie goes onto college wanting to become a physician. But time takes it's toll, the marriage falls apart and Katie goes missing.

Kirsten Dunst plays this role to the hilt, as a woman at a loss to understand who her husband really is, and I had the same question throughout the film. Who is David, really? . The man we first met, the man she married has completely changed. Was he hiding some sort of psychotic imbalance? The rest of the film is creepy in a sense. We view the film from different episodes, past and present. Ryan Gosling certainly plays this character well, keeping us and himself off balance. The fact that this is a true story is eerily chilly.

Whether you adore Ryan Gosling or the lovely and talented Kirsten Dunst - the BLU RAY of 2010's "All Good Things" is afflicted with the same crap that so many titles are nowadays - 'Region Coding'.

As a UK buyer you have two choices in April 2014 - the 'American' Magnolia Pictures BLU RAY is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

The alternative is a 'Euro' release (I believe it's German) that is REGION B - so it will play on our machines. You simply go the set up menu and choose the English Audio (it will be defaulted to German). But it's pricey for such an average film...

So I'm afraid until such time as someone sees fit to release "All Good Things" in the UK at a reasonable price - you're stuck with one BLU RAY that won't play and another that costs too much!

'All Good Things' is a based on a real life murder/missing persons case that took place in America from the eighties. Given the nature of the story, the film adaption offers plenty of drama.

Set in 1970s New York City, household name Ryan Gosling once again proves himself as one of the most talented actors of his generation. The character he plays his time is David Marks, the son of a powerful man who owns acres of real estate. David falls in love with a beautiful student called Katie (played by Kirsten Dunst), and unlike himself, she comes from a working class family. Despite their different backgrounds, the couple are soon married and move to the country to own a heath food shop called 'All Good Things' and start a new life together. We quickly learn more about David's fractured past and after being lured back to their old hometown by his father, we see David turn controlling and violent, especially when Katie suggests having children, and when she becomes increasingly more independent. As secrets of his family are revealed, Katie disappears without a trace. When his best friend is found dead, the 20 year old missing persons case is reopened, with David as the prime suspect. All of the evidence is laid in front of the viewer, who can make up their own mind as to whether David Marks is innocent or guilty.

All of these happenings are told by himself in a flashback, at the start of the film he is seen taking about his life through interview. Within the first few minutes we know that his father is alive, and his mother passed away when David was only seven. We see home video footage of him as a little boy, looking like every other happy child, and playing with his mother.
