This experimental documentary revisits Milwaukee in 1991, the year Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested and sentenced to 957 years in prison for the grisly murder and dismemberment of 17 innocent victims. With quietly unnerving restraint, the film presents the recollections of three people who were around Dahmer during and after the murders, interweaving their testimonies with archival footage and reenactments of the killer’s life, and embedding us in the banality from which these unimaginably brutal crimes emerged.
