As far as good ideas for a movie go, one about a batshit-crazy scion of a New York City real-estate magnate whose first wife goes missing, followed by the unsolved murder of a close friend, followed by the “self-defense” killing and dismembering of a loudmouth neighbor, while at times disguising himself as a mute woman and pilfering pumpernickel sandwiches wouldn’t be half bad. And fortunately, all that stuff actually happened, so it’s like the darn thing already wrote itself!
Just in case you may have confused the above scenario with a different story about a dude who chopped up his neighbor, this one is about Robert Durst, who was found not guilty of murdering his 71-year-old neighbor in Galveston in 2003. And finally, fans of the trial will get to see it on the big screen next year. The movie, “All Good Things,” stars Ryan Gosling as Durst and Kirsten Dunst as his first wife, Kathleen McCormack. No information yet about who plays the neighbor’s body parts. The New York Observer has the story.
