Speaks his mind on music & movies!
By chance CB saw a documentary on a professional contract killer, Richard Kuklinski. He did his work in the New Jersey/New York area. The doc was mesmerizing and CB was fascinated by Kuklinski.
Jump forward a few years and I hear they made a movie about the guy called ‘The Iceman’. I’m not usually into docu/dramas (CB never feels they get it right). Well the filmmakers get it right with this one. It’s a good flick. Well acted, directed (Ariel Vromen), shot and it sweeps you up in Kuklinski’s life. It plays like a documentary.
Michael Shannon plays the title role and he is perfect. What a good actor this guy is. No false moves. CB doesn’t pay attention to the awards in the entertainment world but Shannon would get the CB award. Never saw his work before ( I went onto find more). The guy is good.
If you’re into gritty, real, truthful, violent, dark, coarse and no bailing out you’ll dig it. Again CB doesn’t like comparisons but ‘The Iceman’ is is in the Taxi Driver, Good Fellas, Bad Lieutenant school.
(If inclined check out the documentary)
