“Mesmerizing. Fronted by a commanding performance by Michael Shannon and back by the stealth excellence of its supporting cast, ‘The Iceman’ is a finely chiseled thriller that expertly unpacks its story with control and discipline at every level.” -Variety

“‘Zodiac’ meets ‘Goodfellas.'” -The Guardian

Inspired by actual events, “The Iceman” follows notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, “Take Shelter”) from his early days in the mob until his arrest for the murder of more than 100 men. Appearing to be living the American dream as a devoted husband and father; in reality Kuklinski was a ruthless killer-for-hire. When finally arrested in 1986, neither his wife nor daughters had any clue about his real profession.
