Watch Lindsay Lohan in Arty New Short Film
Lindsay Lohan may be under house arrest as of Thursday, but the troubled starlet is still able to make her art house debut via a new 90-second film by renowned painter Richard Phillips. The project, straightforwardly titled "Lindsay Lohan," was shot last month in Malibu and will play the first week of June in New York City's Gagosian Gallery. Take a look at the "psychological portrait" ahead and bonus points to whomever can guess which two 1960s films inspired the filmmaker and his muse.
If you guessed Jean-Luc Godard's Contempt (starring Brigitte Bardot) and Ingmar Bergman's Persona (starring Liv Ullmann), you win! In an interview with the New York Times, Phillips said, "What fascinates me about Lindsay are not her problems but the way she embodies an eminence on the level of a Bardot or an Ullmann. [...] She's a combination of the fantastic and the real, which is what makes her so magnetic."
The film will also be played on a Jumbotron alongside the Grand Canal in Venice during the opening festivities of the 54th Venice Biennale in June. Because, why not.
