The Iceman

The Iceman was released in 2012 and was directed by Ariel Vromen.  The movie is based on the life of Mafia hit-man Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon).

The movie  is a hard look at cold emotionless sociopath and killer.   We are outsider’s looking into Kuklinski life, but not into his thoughts. He’s like a wild animal, unpredictable except in his violent reactions. Kukinski loved his family and the rest of the world was his prey.   While some might see this lack of insight into Kuklinski as a flaw, I enjoyed it.

Was surprised by how much I liked this movie, it’s not my normal fare.
