The Coming of Age of a Serial-Killer
14 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Jeffrey Dahmer was one of the most notorious serial killers of the United States. "My Friend Dahmer" is a slow-paced film disclosing his coming of age in the high-school. In this film, Dahmer is the son of a dysfunctional family that enjoys to study animal bones, collecting dead animals on the road. He is also a problematic shy teenager with difficulties in the relationship with his mates like many kids are. The screenplay is not clear but seems to show that the divorce of his parents and the separation from his closest friend might have trigged something evil in his troubled mind. But despite the good performances, the narrative is boring and maybe indicated for fans of the story of Dahmer only. My vote is five.
