After spooking audiences with his 2003 documentary
Capturing the Friedmans
, director Andrew Jarecki comes unstuck here, adapting the real-life 1982 case of Robert Durst, who was suspected of causing his wife's disappearance. Slickly shot on impeccable period sets, the story chronicles the twisted tale of a New Yorker who appears to find consolation in a cosy marriage after a tormented childhood. However, his life begins to unravel when he starts working for his father's seedy real estate company. He looks for a way out in Texas, but there he descends into a maelstrom of murder, blackmail and cross-dressing. Ryan Gosling gives his all as the damaged antihero and is ably supported by Kirsten Dunst, Frank Langella and Philip Baker Hall as wife, father and buddy, respectively. But this was a troubled shoot, and that is reflected in the movie's muddled structure and a story that's overloaded with research and unbridled speculation, all told with no clear direction.
The heir of a wealthy family defies his father by marrying a medical student, but over time their marriage deteriorates. When she disappears without trace, he is suspected of having murdered her, and while the accusation is never proven, it repeatedly resurfaces for years to come. Crime drama, starring Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, Frank Langella and Kristen Wiig.
