Storyline

Horace, a New York City down-on-his-luck writer, meets and finds love with a waifish young woman, named Jane, whom he shacks her up in his tiny apartment room and asks her to pose as a model for some creative death scene photos. But Horace's nowhere job and Jane's drug addiction threaten the union between them, until he moves himself and her to Atlantic City to start over and try to help her overcome her addictions. With that all looks well and upbringing for Jane and Horace... so it seems. Written by <pataygs@voicenet.com>

This one is only for the curious, die-hard Calista Flockhart fan
8 July 1999 | by (Austin, Texas (USA)) – See all my reviews

How many times have you been burned when buying a music recording of a favorite artist, only to discover that it was released long before their quality work was produced and the act became well known? A lot of inferior product has been sold taking advantage of an artist's newfound popularity, and "Jane Doe" is a classic example.

Originally released in 1996 as "Pictures of Baby Jane Doe", this 1999 video release features Calista Flockhart, current media darling and star of TV's "Ally McBeal". She plays Jane, a wandering street urchin and sometimes junkie who meets Horace (Christopher Peditto), a part-time bartender in a transvestite bar. Their chance meeting immediately develops into a live-in relationship as unlikely as the rest of the movie.

There isn't much of a plot, other than to follow this pair as they go through a series of highly animated conversations, arguments, trysts, break-ups and reunions. A sub-plot follows them to the home of Jane's estranged father, which provides a bit of background information about her life, none of which is very engaging.

It's a very slow moving film, and when it is over the viewer is left asking what it was all about. The acting is well done, and for fans of Flockhart it's fun to see "Ally McBeal" curse, do hard drugs, and engage in mildly kinky sex scenes. (There is no nudity, but she looks as thin in this film as the tabloids are calling "dangerously anorexic" two to three years after this film was produced.)

I'd give it a (4) on IMDB's scale of (10). If you are a Flockhart fan (as I am) is was a fun curiosity, but there isn't much doubt as to why you didn't see it at your local multi-plex.
