The Jeffrey Dahmer Files Reviews

Jason Buchanan
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Thompson does a commendable job of making his points without overstaying his welcome. Given a bigger budget and better resources, it would be very interesting to see his take on some other controversial cases.

Austin American-Statesman

This approach to a true-crime documentary departs significantly from the sensational, and is all the more moving because of it.

Thompson's intention is not to explain the nature of evil but show how it contaminates the rest of us.

Quite frankly, The Jeffrey Dahmer Files would have been better if it had a little more meat on its bones.

Jeff ends up a movie that's not really about anything.

Pulls off the seemingly impossible feat of making this horrific crime seem dull.

Thompson's film is something really different, a film as polite and as unnerving as its subject, one that burrows down deep into your imagination and stays there.

Chilling and riveting, even if it feels as if there are many questions left unanswered.

Different - and chillingly effective.

Thompson accepts quite a burden of informational responsibility, only to generate an aimless, tedious picture that's part documentary, part re-creation, and mostly unenlightening.

Mesmerizing and haunting, "The Jeffrey Dahmer Files" is an inside-out serial killer movie, lacking in gore or cheap psychology and made in part for those who think they never want to see another serial killer movie.

Shared Darkness

An art collage project that unnecessarily obscures its sizzle and raison d'Ítre when a more straightforward tack would have worked better.

I'm not sure that director and co-writer Chris James Thompson's film sheds any new light on why Dahmer committed his crimes, but I'm also not sure that anything is gained by trying to look too deeply into such a disordered personality.

Thompson assembles his footage with an expert's touch, but what his film lacks is its own perspective on these atrocities.

Teasing out a subversive portrait of a complex and rather subdued monster, The Jeffrey Dahmer Files unfolds with the same meticulousness exemplified by the eponymous serial killer.

...a consistently uneven documentary that could (and should) have been much, much better.
