The Iceman (2012)   Leave a comment

I enjoyed this film. I’ve read reviews calling the direction, by Ariel Vroman, flat but it seemed to me that the director kept the mood as repressed and unemotional as its subject, Richard Kuklinski. The Iceman takes place over twenty years in the life of a notorious hit man/serial killer. I found it a fascinating look at a man who murdered people for a living, then took his daughters roller skating. Michael Shannon underplayed Kuklinski and Winona Ryder surprised me with her performance. Ray Liotta stands out as usual and I wish he had more screen time. David Schwimmer is passable as a lowlife hood and James Franco appears for some reason. Stephen Dorff and Chris Evans shine in their small character roles. I would like to have seen more of them.
