” The Iceman ” opens with a short scene of interrogation, is summarized in a single question. A prisoner of which there are features in the dark and must meet the following inquiry : “Do you regret what you did? ” Which can not be the answer at the end of the film. The contrast is so strong with the next scene, where we find the character , years earlier , prompting a young ” prettier than Natalie Wood” a drink woman. Awkward, a little shy , it quickly realizes that their destinies will unite , for better or for worse.
The title is very significant so the portrait stands Ariel Vromen . His Iceman ( French translation of ” Iceman “) is Michael Shannon , American actor previously seen in ” Take Shelter ” ( Grand Prize of the Critics’ Week in 2011) , a father concerned with protecting his family an invisible threat in ” My son , my son , what have you done? ” Werner Herzog hostage taker infantilized , and “Bug ” by William Friedkin in sickly paranoid . So here he is a new man disturbed, incapable of compassion, and thus the perfect henchman thug first come, able to impose his role .
With nearly 80 % of night scenes , using the wonderfully against – days , the director draws a silhouette soulless up to evoke feelings of fear during a birthday scene overexposed . It installs a heavy atmosphere , creating anxiety through the returned by its anti- hero, wardrobe even four people can barely control , the apparent calm contrast to the outbursts of violence picture, and that no regret seems to affect . A portrait nothing too clinical , where the rules that everyone sets have an undeniable importance .
