Review: Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” That statement describes Derrick J and most of the people in Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree.

Follow Derrick J’s first year in Keene as he goes on his spree of victimless “crimes” in which no person was ever harmed (by Derrick). His first arrest was for filming in a court lobby. He was later wrestled to the ground, arrested and pepper-sprayed for having a dance party and his during his final arrest, KPD’s Finton Moore hit his bicycle with his car door and shoved a nightstick into the spokes of his bicycle.

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree multiple times throughout the production process, and the movie is just as good every time I watch it. The director’s cut DVD contains hours of extra footage from all of Derrick’s arrests, two commentary tracks, a Q&A from the premiere of the film and much more.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll be outraged at the people who made a “criminal” out of one of the most peaceful people you would ever meet.
