A double feature of I Was a Teenage Serial Killer and Mary Jane's Not a Virgin AnymoreMary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore, Jacobson's only feature film, is a vibrant and vital antidote to every phony Hollywood teen picture, bringing lo-fi realness to the coming-of-age genre. I Was a Teenage Serial Killer, a 27-minute short, is Slacker meets Valerie Solanas, as a 19-year-old woman responds to catcalls, condescension, and bad sex the only way she knows how: murder. Taking on every major function from production through distribution, Sarah Jacobson proved herself as a shit-kicker and rule-breaker, finding fans in filmmakers Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging) and Tamra Davis (Crossroads), as well as Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth.
