The Iceman

Michael Shannon is the kind of actor who can take on any role and inhabit it so well you don’t even know he’s acting.  Shannon plays Richard Leonard “The Iceman” Kuklinski (April 11, 1935 – March 5, 2006) an American serial killer  who became a contract killer hired by the mafia. The film begins on  Kuclinski and his wife’s first date and from there explores how he fell into becoming a hitman which incidentally came quite naturally.  The supporting cast is as compelling as the the main character and lends a backbone to the film that will surely make this a classic akin to the likes of “Goodfellas” and “Casino”. It’s good to finally see Ray Liotta in a well-written role he can eat right up. Three surprising stand-out performances were from Winona Ryder, Chris Evans and David Schwimmer who each played out-of-their-genre so well… you could hardly recognize them…and that’s a big ole’ YAY.

The Dynamiter

From the description of  “The Dynamiter” on Netflix this movie seemed like it had promise. I was pleasantly surprised, it had more than promise it had delivery. The main character Robbie Hendrick played quite intricately by William Ruffin was a well-rounded, intriguing character with the help of well written dialogue. I may even go so far as to say that William Ruffin was the movie and his presence kept me watching and caring what would happen.  On certain levels this film reminds me of another favorite “Shadrach”, with it’s seemingly simple, slow pace which hides a more complex, passionate struggle to survive, not to mention the beautiful cinematography. The moments of quiet contemplation by Robbie bring you right into his journey. I highly recommend this movie.
