The true story of Richard Kuklinski, the notorious contract killer believed to have murdered over a hundred people while maintaining a seemingly normal life with his wife and children.
“Michael Shannon’s mesmerizing portrayal of Richard Kuklinski, a notorious contract killer, has the paradoxical quality, peculiar to many great screen performances, of being unreadable and transparent.”-Stephen Holden, New York Times
“Shannon could be looking at an Oscar nomination. His performance is that stone-cold good.”-Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
