The Iceman is a film based on Richard Kuklinski, who's nickname is the title of the film. Kuklinski was a hit man who gained notoriety due to the sheer number of people he killed (the numbers vary between 100 and 250) and the fact that he led a seemingly normal family life (his wife and family didn't know about his profession) outside of his contract killings. He was the subject of two HBO documentaries which showcased the chasm between his job and his family life. He was imprisoned for three murders in 1986 and passed away twenty years later.
