Renner?s face is chillingly unemotive, yet he communicates a great deal in his performance. See it for his performance if nothing else.

Director David Jacobson gives Dahmer a consideration that the murderer never game his victims.

Renner carries much of the film with a creepy and dead-on performance.

Writer-director David Jacobson and his star, Jeremy Renner, have made a remarkable film that explores the monster's psychology not in order to excuse him but rather to demonstrate that his pathology evolved from human impulses that grew hideously twisted.
August 11, 2002
It's shocking, intense, and totally creepy, yet compelling and sad. Jeremy Renner gives a career-making performance.

August 5, 2002
A subtly creepy, gently disturbing portrait of a genuinely disturbed man...The point of the exercise might not be apparent, but its artistry certainly is.

Less the sensational true-crime hell-jaunt purists might like and more experimental in its storytelling (though no less horrifying for it).

Baby-faced Renner is eerily convincing as this bland blank of a man with unimaginable demons within.
July 12, 2002
The movie should be credited with remembering his victims.

It lets you brush up against the humanity of a psycho, without making him any less psycho.
