November’s Reel Reads Selection: My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf!
Before Jeffrey Dahmer became one of the most notorious serial killers of all time, he was a teenage loner. Conducting grisly experiments in a makeshift backyard lab, Jeff was invisible to most. That is until his increasingly bizarre behavior unexpectedly attracted friends. Based on the cult graphic novel, My Friend Dahmer chronicles the origins of the man. The monster. The high school senior.
Writer/director Marc Meyers adapts graphic novelist (and actual Dahmer classmate) Derf Backderf’s source material with a careful eye, presenting this origin story with a thoughtful approach and drawing a revelatory performance from former Disney star Ross Lynch (Teen Beach Movie) as the teenage Jeff. Shot on location not just in Dahmer’s hometown, but also in his actual childhood home, the film nails the necessary period details with stunning accuracy. A highly unique biopic, My Friend Dahmer entertains with its frighteningly compelling narrative while simultaneously presenting a nuanced snapshot of mental illness, the inherent desire for human interaction, and the perils of duplicitous friendship. (Dir. by Marc Meyers, 2017, USA, 107 mins., Rated R)
