The IcemanThe Iceman
In this biographical dramatisation, we see Shannon as the real life ‘Iceman’ Richard Kuklinski a notorious and prolific hitman. The titular lead, for all his questionable morals, does have some strict rules, which eventually spark his downfall. Shannon gives a truly scary performance, deploying the dark, dangerous and violent character he’s got nailed to impressive levels – Kuklinski is able to keep his criminal life and profuse murderous activity secret from his family, and is terrifyingly good at balancing the two, although the violence does increasingly creep into his family life when he’s suspended for a hit gone wrong…
You can see Michael Shannon in another dark and dangerous role when Frank & Lola comes out on digital download on 20th February – if it’s quiet, brooding intensity and passionate violent outbursts you’re after, you won’t be disappointed.
Frank & Lola is available now available on Digital HD and out on DVD on April 10th
