"Ably spoofing the tweedy, insular world of academia, director Jerzy Rose strikes an irreverent tone that combines arch absurdity with shaggy dog weirdness. The cast of non-actors gives first-rate performances, including an oddball cameo by Chris Sullivan (director of Consuming Spirits, WFF 2013)."
CRIMES @ Boston Underground Film Festival
"Waving our happily-misanthropic-flag proudly, BUFF is thrilled to present the East Coast premiere of Slamdance darling Crimes Against Humanity, the sophomore feature of Chicago filmmaker Jerzy Rose that will both hilariously and painfully resonate for all 80,000+ of you currently ensconced in that peculiar Dantean milieu of ego and drama known as academia."
"The film definitely has its laughs due to Lopez’s spot-on portrayal of Lewis (foiled by his vastly more moral brother) and also because of the way in which Brownie’s free-spirited but aimless character is written." - Alexander Ortega, SLUG Magazine
"Hill and Lopez, neither of whom are actors, bring their characters to life with plenty of raw, layered emotion as well as a sense of play, like little kids trying to handle adult situations." - Paul Sbrizzi
"Rose and co-writer Halle Butler are masters of wry humor, delighting in their characters’ self-pity, casual dishonesty and cruelty. Mike Lopez and Lyra Hill are beyond perfect in the lead roles, generating spark showers of subtextual resentment in their scenes together." - Hammer to Nail
