Jeremy Renner is one of my all time favorite actors and I love the fact that his 2nd movie was "Dahmer," in the starring role. The movie came out in 2002 and is directed by David Jacobson. I really like how the movie didn't just show a serial killer killing people. In the version, you a glimpse into Jeffrey Dahmer's past and what contributed to him becoming the crazy sick man he turned into. The "present" of the film runs in chronological order covering the period of one-to-two days; the flashbacks go in reverse order, so that Dahmer is seen as successively younger until the movie arrives at his first murder and its aftermath. Now I'm not saying his childhood or social skills made him into a killer, but it definitely didn't help. I definitely recommend this movie for a few reasons. Not only is the story good and goes back and forth from his past to the present time in the film, Jeremy Renner did some amazing actor in it. He's very raw and dark as his character that you are definitely convinced he is Jeffrey Dahmer. All the acting is brilliant. Bruce Davison, another great actor, plays his father and is also good in it.
