The Iceman (2012)

The story of Richard Kuklinski, the notorious contract killer and family man, whose wife and daughters never had any clue about his real profession.

Unfortunately, this fact-based story gets a quite formulaic treatment, but the movie does offer a good cast, and Michael Shannon's stellar performance saves the day.

Maltin***: "Tough, fact-based character study/crime drama...well made and extremely well acted, though it lacks the depth of Scorsese's GOODFELLAS and such TV series  as The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire; not surprisingly, actors from all three...are cast here."

Hollywoodland (2006)

A detective examines the mysterious death of George Reeves, the star of the television series Adventures of Superman.

A highly interesting story is nicely made with good period details, but leaves the mystery unsatisfactorily unresolved; the excellent star cast makes this movie worth the watch.

Maltin***1/2: "Nuanced, well-written and -realized period piece, with Brody, Lane, Hoskins, and especially Affleck turning in flawless performances."
