HPPH Synopsis:With complex thrillers like TAKE SHELTER and PREMIUM RUSH recently under his belt, Shannon is emerging as the go-to guy for damaged-goods anti-heroes. In his portrayal of real-life freelance killer Richard Kuklinski he emits a certain quiet, psychopathic menace that is truly chilling. Married to his unsuspecting teenage sweetheart, Kuklinski is hired to do the dirty work for the more overtly nasty New Jersey gangster Roy Demeo. It’s a simple tale of killer take all – or at any rate, most – but Shannon’s considerable presence, and the gritty ’70s look created by director Ariel Vromen, ensure that THE ICEMAN exerts an unyielding grip on its audience.
Ok I know we have some Michael Shannon fans in our group so I hope that those can make it. I like him too, ever since Take Shelter, which this group went to see. Does anyone else think his face is half Robert de Niro and half Steve Buscemi?
As you can see from the poster, the movie is getting some good reviews.
