Danny Ledonne, director of Playing Columbine, was kind enough to send us this review via email:
This compelling personal documentary follows a young man named Derrick J. on his “rampage” of “criminal behavior” – from dancing in a public park and handing out information on public school property to recording video in public buildings and riding a bike along a public street!
Though Derrick’s docile naivete can sometimes feel like disingenuous acting for the nearby camera, he nonetheless serves as an effective contrast to the authoritarian state employees who bark orders, chase him down, and tackle him for the victimless crimes he commits. Be prepared to endure some shaky amateur camerawork as Derrick and other activists train their cameras on the scene of the victimless crime, and make sure you have the volume up for some of the less audible dialog in unforgiving shooting conditions, but realize that audiences will get an authentic, unscripted series of encounters with government officials whose “services” were neither requested nor required.
With commentary by other New Hampshire-based liberty activists charged with similar crimes as well as archival interview material from “Brave New World” author Aldous Huxley and the writings of philosopher Lysander Spooner, “Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree” is sure to entertain and educate audiences familiar with the ideas of voluntary association as well as those who wrongly assume they live in a “free country.”
