Noir: Care to partake of the Lohan Cool-Aide?

The short film was shot last month in Malibu by surf-filmmaker Taylor Steele. It features shots of Lohan in both a bikini and a turtleneck, looking at and away from the camera wistfully, as synthesized rock music plays in the background. She is always alone.

"Lindsay has an incredible emotional and physical presence on screen that holds an existential vulnerability, while harnessing the power of the transcendental - the moment in transition," Phillips said in a statement. "She is able to connect with us past all of our memory and projection, expressing our own inner eminence."
In an interview with the New York TimesT magazine, Phillips said the film was inspired by two 1960s movies: Jean-Luc Godard’s Contempt, starring Brigitte Bardot, and Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, starring Liv Ullmann.
"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,” Phillips said. “She’s a combination of the fantastic and the real, which is what makes her so magnetic. She can also bring forward an existential presence that speaks to the isolated self.”

  1. Lindsay Lohan settles suit over 2007 highway chase

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Lindsay Lohan has settled a lawsuit filed by a woman who was chased by the actress in a pre-dawn car pursuit in 2007. Court records show Lohan settled the case Wednesday with Tracie Rice, who claimed she was traumatized and lost a well-paying job because of the incident, which resulted in one of Lohan's arrests for drunken driving. No details of the settlement were released. The case has been frequently delayed because of Lohan's ongoing legal troubles, which have included rehab and jail sentences. The 24-year-old actress surrendered on Thursday on a probation violation and is expected to serve 35 days on house arrest. Lohan's civil attorney, Ed McPherson wrote in an email that the actress "is very pleased to put this unfortunate event behind her." The Associated Press
