There have been plenty of insights into this most notorious of serial killers.
This offering has unexpected poignancy, as it’s based on the firsthand experiences of John (Derf) Backderf, who attended high school at the same time as Dahmer (Ross Lynch) – a misfit whose increasingly unhinged behaviour was at first a source of amusement and fascination for Backderf and his friends. As the trials of its subject’s troubled life unspool, My Friend Dahmer stays mercifully free of psychological speculation, instead drawing its dramatic impetus from the threat of impending violence. A unique and startling achievement.
