Lindsay Lohan is currently filming Lifetime’s Liz & Dick but that isn’t the only film she’s starring in this year.
Artist Richard Phillips’ directed a short film titled First Point starring Lindsay which will premiere at Art Unlimited at Art Basel in Switzerland on June 11. HuffPo has the details.
Phillips brought in the experts for the project, working with acclaimed surf movie director Taylor Steele (who also co-directed “Lindsay Lohan”), pro-surfer Kassia Meador and none other than Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk (for the film’s score). According to a press release, the short is a “post-modern take on the surf film genre through an abstract framework of imagery in which the actress engages in cinema performance tropes inspired by contemporary film noir.”
Lindsay Lohan acting in a film inspired by contemporary film noir. Just stringing those words together put me to sleep. Imagine actually having to watch that. They should hand out knives beforehand so the audience won’t have to go to the trouble of fumbling through their pockets to find something to slit their wrists with.
There is a chance it could turn out great but everything makes it sound like high art. And you know what high art rhymes with? High fart. Why, yes, I am five-years-old.
Sorry for the pre-roll. I tried to find a YouTube version.
