Hopfully we get the scans soon for W Magazine, but W Magazine website has posted the interview in its full on their site. Here is a little from it:
LH: Did you watch a lot of John Cassavetes to get in the mood?
RG: Not really. But I love Peter Falk. I wish I could be Peter Falk. When I made The Notebook, the director, Nick Cassavetes, who is John’s son, used to show me his father’s movies. He told me so many stories: John would have an idea for a movie, and he’d wake Nick up in the middle of the night and pitch the story to him. Nick would start to fall asleep, and his dad would rearrange the plot to keep him interested. Actually, the story never mattered. John was mostly interested in the characters. If the character is true, the movie will fall into place. Or at least that’s what you hope.
LH: Is that why you watch a lot of reality TV? Are you looking for the truth on, say, Cake Wars?
RG: In a way. You do see human nature on those shows. But unfortunately fondant has changed the entire nature of cake decorating. It used to be more creative—fondant has changed everything
After a long wait ‘All Good Things’ finally has a release date: December 2010. The trailer has been very hard to get a lengthy view. It does look like a very intense film.
Here is what EW has to say about it:
Andrew Jarecki, the filmmaker behind 2003′s riveting documentary Capturing the Friedmans, has finally found a theatrical distributor for his first feature film All Good Things, starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. Magnolia Pictures has acquired all rights to the drama and will release the film this December.
Jarecki, who founded MovieFone prior to becoming a filmmaker, bought his film back from the Weinstein Co. in March after waiting over a year for the beleaguered player to release the drama he filmed back in 2008. All Good Things was inspired by the real-life story of Robert Durst, the real estate scion suspected of, but never tried for, killing his wife Kathie, who disappeared in 1982 and was never found. “Because it is impossible to know exactly what happened, we have not tried to replicate the history of the case, but to capture the emotion and complexity of this unsolved mystery that has for years been kept hidden from public view,” says Jarecki, who produced the film along with Marc Smerling, Michael London, and Bruna Papandrea. Jarecki developed the script with Smerling and Marcus Hinchey.
The Weinstein Co. will handle the foreign sales of the film but Jarecki is counting on the team who released Friedmans to distribute his latest endeavor stateside. All Good Things will be the second Gosling drama to bow in December. Ironically, the Weinstein Co. will bow the Sundance hit Blue Valentine, where Gosling stars opposite Michelle Williams, on Dec. 31.
