7 Days In Arts


With a title like “Jane White Is Sick and Twisted” the
product practically sells itself. But just in case you haven’t heard of this
little cult film, here’s what you need to know: Obsessed with television and
home-schooled by an agoraphobic mother, Jane White’s strange life gets stranger
when she sets out to find her absent father by trying to make it onto “The Gerry
Show,” a TV talk show in the vein of “Jerry Springer.” In the process, she
encounters freaks of every variety. Written, directed and produced by David
Michael Latt, the movie stars TV icons like Maureen McCormick of “The Brady
Bunch” and Dustin Diamond of “Saved by the Bell.” It’s now available on DVD.
