Film Review
Back Street Jane
Coming off as a filmic, distaff Donald Westlake caper novel, Back Street Jane is a compelling, gritty and effective piece of filmmaking.

Director/Writer Ronnie Cramer gets involved with the methods of pulling off its extortion plan, both demystifying and deglamorizing the criminals depicted. Jane and Diane (Marlene Shapiro and Monica McFarland) are two thieves who need money to bet on a sure thing. They decide to break into a drug dealer's house and steal whatever drugs and/or money he might have laying about. Jane, however, discovers the dealer dead and the hand of Francis and Nicole. he two decide to blackmail the murderers, and Nicole (a creepy turn by Sheila Ivy Traister) decides to double-cross them by cutting the cocaine she lifted from the dealer's house with arsenic...

This is one tough flick, never flinching when it could, but never shouting when a whisper is sufficient. The pace is deceptively slow, but actually moves fairly well. It never sags, constantly moving forward toward its grisly conclusion. In fact, the scenes you would expect to be dull and boring - Diane and Jane trying to locate the killer's car, Diane tailing the deadly Nicole - are fascinating to watch. Back Street Jane is a damn good picture, a crime drama that doesn't romanticize its subject while keeping your attention from beginning to end. Watch for it. - Sergio Taubmann

Mystery Scene Magazine
Readers of this column indicate they appreciate my rental and mail-order movies-on-tape advice. Here's more...Scorched Earth Productions has an excellent catalogue of classic crime films on tape...this is a real find for movie mystery fans - send a buck for the great catalogue. Also available is Scorched Earth's own modern noir, Back Street Jane, directed and written by Ronnie Cramer. A slick yet gritty combination of straightforward crime flick and underground art film, Cramer's tale of amoral female hustlers who try to blackmail a murderer belies its non-existent budget, and along the way presents a memorably scary 'Dragon Lady.' - Max Allen Collins

1989

Factsheet 5
Back Street Jane

This 'modern film noir' is one of the best independent films we've been sent to review here. It's a complex story of double-crossing in the dangerous world of cocaine dealing, but on the street level rather than in some casino or smoky back room. Monica McFarland, Marlene Shapiro and Sheila Ivy Traister make a daunting trio of female leads, working for and against one another for the prize of the drugs. The camera work and pacing are excellent, and the film really works well in black and white. The ending is one of the most grisly shockers I've seen in some time, believable enough to be truly scary. Not suitable for minors of course, since as they say 'contains violence, nudity, drug abuse, profanity and sexual situations.' But for you grown-ups, this is a film worth chasing down. - Mike Gunderloy
