Sliff 2017 Interview: Marc Meyers – Director of My Friend Dahmer

Before Jeffrey Dahmer became one of the most notorious serial killers of all time, he was a teenage loner. Conducting grisly experiments in a makeshift backyard lab, Jeff was invisible to most, until his increasingly bizarre behavior unexpectedly attracted friends. Based on the acclaimed graphic memoir by cartoonist John “Derf” Backderf — who was a teenage friend of the nascent serial killer and nearly became his first human victim — My Friend Dahmer chronicles the origins of the man, the monster — and the high-school senior. Ross Lynch portrays Dahmer in a performance that Paper Magazine describes as “haunted, sad, scary, and unforgettable,” and the exceptional cast includes Anne Heche, Vincent Kartheiser, Dallas Roberts,

‘Harvest’

Reviewed by Amy R. Handler

(June 2011)

Directed/Written by: Marc Meyers

Starring: Robert Loggia, Jack Carpenter, Victoria Clark, Arye Gross, Barbara Barrie, Peter Friedman, Adrianna Sevan, Kel O’Neill and Daniel Eric Gold

Marc Meyers’ “Harvest” is the most elegantly written, sensitively portrayed movie so far this year. Powerful and life-affirming, it is a film that no adult can afford to miss.

The plot, if it can be called that, is so simple and universal, it feels as natural as life itself. An old man named Siv (Robert Loggia) is dying, and three generations of his family gather together to be with him in his last few months.

The scenario’s been played a million times over — but then most cinematic plots return time and time again. What makes Meyers’ story different is an authenticity that feels so real it’s hard to believe we’re watching a film at all.
