The Iceman: Confessions of a Mafia Hitman



The Iceman is a pair of HBO specials about a former mafia enforcer Richard Kuklinski. The first interview of Kuklinski was taken in 1991, five years after when he received consecutive life sentences for multiple murders.

Kuklinski lived a double life i.e. as a “businessman” and as a loyal husband and father, like the fictional hitmen in The Sopranos and Road to Perdition. He was expert in the tidy use of cyanide and telling about numerous murders in graphic detail. These disreputable interviews are interesting as a firsthand record of mafia killing, otherwise these serves little purpose beyond morbid exploitation.
