A biopic of Richard Kuklinski (Shannon), a tormented psychopath who, employed as a contract killer by the New Jersey Mafia, murdered as many as 200 people over several decades — all unbeknownst to his loving wife (Ryder) and daughters.
This solemn, blood-soaked thriller lacks the dynamism of its star, but is an impressive showcase for him nonetheless: it’s as hard to look away from Shannon’s performance as it is to look directly at it.
