Genre: Drama/Biography

Audience: Adults REVIEWER: Dr. Tom
Snyder DAHMER is a confused
look into the evil mind of the
gruesome cannibal and serial
killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who was
killed in 1994 while serving a
life sentence in prison.
Jeremy Renner stars as the
killer. The movie travels back
and forth in time showing
Dahmer's obsession with
homosexual pornography and
alcohol. Dahmer has
confrontations with his
father, who tries to help him
with his drinking but gets
angry about his son's
secretive need for privacy.
The movie also shows Dahmer
trying to seduce young men,
eventually drugging his
victims so that he can rape
them or murder them. DAHMER
never really explains the
famous serial killer's
behavior. At some points,
however, the movie suggests
that Dahmer became violent
because he repressed his
homosexual desires instead of
expressing them openly. This
is ultimately an abhorrent,
politically correct worldview.
DAHMER avoids most of the
graphic details of Dahmer's
violent life, but it does
depict him raping some male
victims, angrily choking a
couple of them and mutilating
two of his murder victims. The
movie also contains some
strong foul language and
marijuana use. Also, a couple
scenes featuring policemen are
not flattering to their
intelligence. Please address
