Dull
3 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

So boring I could barely get through it. Maybe that was the idea. . Dahmer led such a dreary existence that his psycopathy was intensified. I also found it annoying that they tried so hard to make Dahmer's little loser entourage out to be these "witty cool kids" and Dahmer out to be some sort of Napoleon Dynamite (another incredibly dull movie) type character that you're supposed to relate to and have empathy for. I'm sure they thought they were exhibiting some fascinating realism, but I'm sure the actual reality was far more ordinary and far more interesting. I now have zero desire to read the graphic novel.
