Movie Reviews

The better of the two interview compilations
Z. Freeman | Austin, TX | 12/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Iceman Interviews is a 45 minute collection of interviews with Richard Kuklinski and uses pretty much all the same footage as another DVD called Confessions of a Mafia Hitman. Although both DVDs are interesting and offer a peek into the mind of a hitman, arguably a serial killer, although he got paid for it at times, this one has a section titled The Iceman and The Psychologist. That makes all the difference.

This 15 minute interview that Richard Kuklinski has with a psychologist is very eye-opening and really delves into how and why Kuklinski would 1. perform these heinous acts, and 2. be able to perform these heinous acts. It's very interesting to see Kuklinski talk about how these actions made him feel, as well as talking about his childhood and the way his father treated him.

If you're at all interested in psychology or the psychology of serial killers and other abnormalities in the human psyche, this section will keep you enthralled. I only wish it were longer.

The rest of the DVD contains footage and interviews that the other DVD contains as well. In these sections Kuklinski talks about how he went about his career as a hitman, and describes different murders that he committed."

"This compilation includes all 3 Iceman interviews. He comes across like a true psychopath except for the tears shed for his family in the first interview. The interview with the FBI psychologist is the most interesting, as is the Iceman's reaction to the prognosis."
An in depth view of a sociopath
Peter F. Andrus | Albany,NY, USA | 03/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The "Iceman Interviews" contains three interviews of Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski at Trenton Prison, a maximum security prison in NJ. Kuklinski
was a hired hit-man for the Mafia who enjoyed his work and attempted to
elaborate on it. His victims fell prey to cyanide, a crossbow, rats in
a cave and were often random prey as well as Mafia targets. It is the cold
and cool countenance of Kuklinski that makes the tape. He is not upset by
what he has done, describes killing in a matter of fact way and fulfills
all the criteria for the diagnosis "sociopath". It is riveting to watch and offers a view of a type of killer not often seen."
Mommy, can i have some money for the iceman!

"this video and also the first one to come out compile three seperate HBO interviews on richard kuklinski.
won't go into it cuz everyone who'se interested knows what this is.

what people might not know, is that HBO were planning to do an unprecedented FOURTH special on kuklinski, yet he died in march of this year (2006).
maybe they have completed something that we may yet see.(ever see those 15 minute shows on HBO that fill up time? they are like 15-20 minutes)
i'd like to see whatever they have finished, since Kuklinski is thought to have been poisoned, as he died the DAY BEFORE he was supposed to testify against sammy "the bull" gravano."
