Marc Meyer’s film ‘My Friend Dahmer’ (based of the graphic novel of the same name), depicts a young Jeffery Dahmer in high school, Dahmer is seen to be an outsider, a trope that has been toyed with in media years before. The problem arises when the ‘tortured teenager’ is also responsible for the rape and murder of 17 boys and men, instead of focusing on the victims that Dahmer tore away from their families, Meyers chooses to victimize a man who would later go on to commit some of the most horrendous acts the world has ever seen.The difference between Marc Meyer’s My Friend Dahmer and David Fincher’s Zodiac and Se7en is the perspective of the films. Both Zodiac and Se7en, tells a story about a serial killer (one fictional and one real), from the point of view of people trying to uncover the identity of the killer, showing the victims and presenting them as deranged murders committing equally as deranged crimes, not presenting them as the odd-one-out at the back of the classroom. After watching Se7en, you don’t feel any pity for Kevin Spacey’s character even after he expresses his envy for a normal life. Having a serial murder as your lead has been done before Marc Meyers film, Dexter is a well-known book series and TV show, but the simple difference is one killed 17 real men and teenagers while the other is a 100% fictious character.
