All Good Things

A couple of weeks ago, the entertainment section of the New York Times offered readers a little bit of strange, even creepy information. A feature about Andrew Jarecki’s new, fact-based film, All Good Things, included a response from its notorious real life central character about the film’s merits. Robert Durst said it wasn’t bad.

Little Fockers

Here’s the kind of movie Little Fockers is: The director got Robert DeNiro and Harvey Keitel together for what, as far as I can tell, is only their second time together since Mean Streets and Taxi Driver (they were both in Copland, but I don’t recall that they had a scene together), and what does he give them to do? Nothing. Keitel has an undignified bit part as a sleazy contractor, he and DeNiro bark at each other a bit as part of a general melee, and the scene moves on. I don’t think that anyone involved with the film even realized what a momentous occasion this was. If so, they certainly didn’t take advantage of it.
