Consensus: It's well-acted, and the true story that inspired it offers plenty of drama -- which is why it's so frustrating that All Good Things is so clichéd and frustratingly ambiguous.

The film is so busy working hard to convict one rather shady character, it never convinces us of its own reason to exist.

It also feels like one man's attempt to try another in the court of cinema, or perhaps correct the course of justice itself.

The acting occasionally borders on great. The story itself is more than worthy. But none of that comes close to overcoming the misguided pacing and overall lack of depth.

There's a fascinating story here for a bolder filmmaker, but after so much meandering it's a relief that All Good Things must come to an end.

Jarecki knows how to make scenes of boisterous family reunions and quiet moments between lovers engaging: He fares less well, though, when the story takes a dark turn.

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.

David Parkinson
Radio Times

A story that's overloaded with research and unbridled speculation, all told with no clear direction.

There is very little that Ryan Gosling does that I do not like. He always brings a powerhouse performance. The story begins to drag a bit, but Ryan's… More
