Murder=Not So Good
Not many people admit to a brutal murder and avoid a lengthy prison sentence, but not many people are cross-dressing billionaire Robert Durst. In 2001, Durst admitted to killing a neighbor in self defense and was later acquitted, but this wasn't his first brush with the law. In 1982, Durst became the prime suspect in the disappearance of his wife Kathleen, who to this day has not been found. The disappearance of Kathleen Durst is considered one of the most notorious unsolved cases in New York, and it's now the inspiration for the film All Good Things. The film features the Durst-inspired character David Marks, who marries medical student Katie and moves to Vermont to open a health store called All Good Things--but that's when very bad things happen to the couple. Soon Marks' father, a real estate tycoon, forces his son into the family business, and David's relationship with Katie begins to crack as he experiences bouts of rage and mental illness. The film, which also covers Durst's subsequent charges in Galveston and the allegations that he murdered his best friend, is a glimpse into the life of a complex and troubled man whom many also call a serial killer. Catch the film Friday through Sunday the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Tickets are $8.50, $6.50 for Modern members. For tickets and showtimes, call 817-738-9215 or visit themodern.org.
