If you’re down with all that shit, then watch Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, Stephen Dorff, Ray Liotta, James Franco, and Winona Ryder get down on some multi-decade Mob murderin’ in this trailer for Ariel Vromen’s The Iceman. I’m hooked.
Oh, and it’s pretty edgy, so NSFW guys.
I love how ostentatiously the hairstyles are being used to move the story through time.
This looks mean and ugly that will put it right at home in our modern crime story paradigm that is full of shows and movies that see how far they can push empathy with psychopathic individuals, often while simultaneously punishing us for doing so. In this case though, there’s no meth involved, just good ole fashioned Mafia whackin’.
The film is on the TIFF line-up, but still has no announced distribution plan. Hopefully word from the fest will be good and that will change quickly.
