Jon Bloor : you 've got to admit. The interviewer has got bollocks to tell him what he thinks.

Dave Nix : Mr Deitz is fearless, the same trait that a psychopath is born with,only that it is put to good use,.

taergehtsiram : I love watching this. I find it incredibly profound and important. I love the straight-forward style of Park Dietz. He's very upfront and unflinching, yet completely respectful. Classy guy.

anon wong : Put all the pedophiles and rapists in the same room as him, let him take care of the job.

contelecon 2725 : The level of eye contact is unreal

dom toretto : the analyst gave him the perfect explanation...real pro

Mary : 'Ive come full circle,its time for me to die" very dramatic ,gave me chills!!

southsyde Sasha : Not only his father was abusing him and he doesn't tell the guy or what reason but his father KILLED one of his brothers when he was a kid in front of him& the family's story was kid fell down stairs. Thats left out of the interview and it shouldnt have been bc imo, he watched his father kill he learned to kill from his father.

baileys60 : Blink man God dammit the shrink freaks me out more than the iceman

HowDidHeDoThat5 : The Doc got to him when he was talking about his dad and childhood. You can see it in his eyes he wanted to cry. Not out of sadness but relief that somebody has the balls to tell him what’s wrong. I’m pretty sure nobody has every been straight up with him like this doc has been.

stevie bops : It seems like Kuklinski got more than he bargained for here. He's probably so used to being in control in conversations, that being analysed so well was probably like being disarmed and stripped.

Grand Champ : This guy is good. Speaking so calmly and clear when you sit next to a mass murderer... Amazing. Balls of steel.

kitty Love : To all the abusive parents this is what you create.Not only do you create these killers but you destroy other peoples lives. The true fault starts with the root not the one who committed these crimes.

red green : "It's all i've got left, everything I ever loved is gone, everything I ever liked is gone. So hate." "That's all you started with too." "Then i've come full circle, and it's time for me to die." I was soooo hoping they put that in the film, a chilling but fantastic quote.

stormin300 : My Psychiatrist said I was Paranoid, but then that bastard always had it in for me!!

Wolfgang Woldt : What an extremely insightful interview...Park Dietz is absolutely fantastic...and even thought Richard came close to wanting to attack him during one portion of the extended interview, because he felt Park was being critical of the end, I think he really appreciated Park being able to give him insight into his abhorrent behaviour...the interesting thing with Richard is that sometimes he comes across as likeable...such a dry wit...he was able to fool so many...even his own wife...I could but not help but feel sorry for him...had he been born into a loving, caring family...his life would have been so different....his story is both fascinating...and sad...

SuperNn19 : My mother used to beat the shit out of me. sometimes my dad too . I'm an adult now. I don't hate my parents but the beating affected me so much I'm always live in constant fear .Mostly I feel like everyone would attack me or hurt me. or I would do a great job or things but still I feel like it's wrong . can't say what I want or do. it's very true who become as a person depends on childhood.I feel for this guy but I don't support what he did.

Christa Stempel : Wow, this was intense. Yeah thank you manile for showing this. It is quite incredible how Dr. Dietz was able to remain so professional and at the same time so honestly compassionate, without any bullshit emotionality, just showing clarity of thought. It was also amazing to see how Kuklinski followed what Dr. Dietz had to say with obvious awareness of himself being talked about, but not having his ego playing a part in the process. What I got out of this interview, is seeing a lot of sadness in this ice cold killer, and I can't help but feel so sorry for this man, because it is so clear that there is a truly hurt human being, deep down in his soul.

Christopher Milford : These serial killers get a kick out of the attention they get.  I think that's why Dennis Rader started sending messages to law enforcement years after he had stopped committing crimes.  I believe he was afraid he was going to die and not get the credit for his crimes. The psychologist in this interview is very good.

The Fallen Angel : One word for this interview = WOW

Spencer Healy : Kuklinski was the only serial killer I actually have a little respect for.

Kal Sizzle : can we get Vince Gilligan to make an award winning tv series out of this?

Rob Late : This doctor basically explained why there is no such thing as hell. If evil is genetic and nurtured, how are people like Richard responsible for their actions? It's out of their hands. And what God would make such an error?

Biltospill : "Enough about me, lets talk about you. What do you think about me." He is such a narcissist and his question proves it. lol.

Giorgi Gudiashvili : I'm looking at the guy and can't believe he murdered 200 people.

Patrick M : Come on doc, it's ok to blink here and there.

j9andphoenix : Park Dietz is a world reknowned forensic psychiatrist - different from a psychologist - psychiatrists go through usual medical school then focus on their specialty. In his interview with The Iceman he shows just HOW good he is. The full interview is worth watching - it is admirable to work in a world where we don't only revile and kill people but try and learn about them too - some antisocials like to just talk about their crimes in order to 'relive the rush' - I get the impression that Richard Kuklinski genuinely wanted to know WHY -that said I think he knew why - but perhaps asked the question to see if he could accept that Dr Dietz DID understand who he was and why. For simple respect. To allow him to go further. Sometimes it is very difficult to allow ourselves to understand when someone does truly vile things. Mostly I guess. We very rarely get to know the full history of the person who committed atrocities and for the most part people don't want to know-don't care to know. To understand doesn't lessen the ugliness of their actions.

paul oliver : being 260lb and 6' 4in helps a little with fearlessness

neil : if I was richard I wudda choked the interviewer to death for old times sake.

Robust Shikaka : This interviewer is a god

Geovanny German : The psychiatrist gave him a perfect breakdown of what's going on, always wanted to understand what is exactly that a psychopath feels or think

Hubert Applebaum : This guy conducting the interview seems to pin certain behavioural aspects on genetic predispositions and I have to agree on that we can even see it more clearly in dog breeds. Most dog breeds are known for certain behavioural characteristics, for example certain dogs breeds are known for bonding more with one person inside a family and others are known for being social and open to many people. Others are known for being more obedient and others for being less obedient. It's the truth that pit bulls for example are more dangerous due to their genetic predisposition in both the physical as well as psychological aspects. Of course like the man in the interview points out, with great parenting etc.. it is still possible for those with these predispositions to lead a normal life. Now I see this reflecting in the crime statistics, even when you take away the factor of socio economic standing certain people are more likely to commit violent crimes. Others are more likely to abuse substances etc.. And when looking at intelligence the same applies. Therefore it is important we further research into genetic predispositions for certain behavioural aspects. And use that knowledge to properly guide humans within our society.

Laurie Bryant : It's a tragic tale, treated so horribly that he was a serial killer, successful contract mafia Hitman.

R. Craig : that stare...

Dennis Settlemyre : Lol, the doc was like, "I'll give it a shot"..... Then ripped his psyche apart.

Richard Henry : Put some camoflauge on this guy and he'd be wearing medals and labelled a brave hero. It all depends on circumstances, how its packaged sold and perceived that make the killing different. And yet its the same.

Ron Thunders : why was this soo incredibly interesting? the 2 of them talking back and fourth, and just watching richards eyes while he’s finding out ALL this information about why he is the way he is, and hearing his reply was just as interesting. I am soo used to BULLSHIT conversation, that when i see REAL questions, answers, and talking, i find it INTRIGUING!!!!

noobslayer135 : 9:55 anyone else get goosebumps?

Ikaika Maleko : Dude had both type of the perfect storm..........the perfect killer.

TheGoogler77 : It's too bad about Kuklinski. His childhood messed him up badly. He looked like he would have killed that psychiatrist if he could.

Bodhi : You can't help but feel bad for the child that was Richard Kuklinski. It makes me question morality and God. He never asked to be born into a household of hate and torment. We can't be sure if he wouldn't have killed if he was raised in a nurturing environment, but I'm guessing otherwise. Child is father of the man.

Rocky Alfresco : I have the paranoid personality disorder.

Nuancolar : Very interesting series and explains why you never underestimate anyone. You have no idea what's going on with someone you don't know, or what they are capable of. Think of all the folks who crossed Kuklinski's path and thought they had it all under control. They thought they could push him around and before they realized their error, it all faded to black.

David Geraci : Richard is truly listening for probably the first time in his life

Erik Norman : how is it possible for the interviewer to keep eye contact for that long???

Chump Johnson : I think it took a lot of courage for Ted to seek out why he is the way he is. Most people spend a lifetime running from themselves.

crimony : If he cannot feel, how does he feel hatred and loneliness?

Roger Mouton : This conversation is nothing short of incredible

Jay Donagh : This clip is so intense. The psychologist gives him a perfect, honest analysis. Pure eye contact, no social constraints, no awkwardness. Richard sits there, stone-faced listening to him. At the end, he simply agrees with him; he announces he has nothing else to live for, and it's time for his death. Gives me chills every time.

Captain Kirk : 5:38 you can really see sadness displaying in his face when he learns he could have grown up to a normal “fearless person” (instead of a killer) if he would have had decent parents. He also starts to blink quickly with his eyes until he is allowed to speak himself again.
