While everyone is busy chugging gallons of Lindsay Lohan-flavored hateorade, the girl just keeps on dropping bomb after bomb. Yesterday marked the premiere of the five-minute film titled First Point as part of Switzerland’s Art Basel Festival. The short piece features not only a hot-as-hell Lindsay Lohan but also the sounds of Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter. Directed by Richard Phillips, the narrative (if you can call it that ) focuses on her tearing it up on a surfboard and relaxing on the beach.
Sound familiar? That’s because this is the second installment between the actress and director. You might remember the first collaboration titled “LINDSAY LOHAN” which literally just shows her doing absolutely nothing but hanging out on the beach and in a swimming pool. If that’s considered “art,” you can consider me a “fan.”
While I’m unsure if Phillips is attempting to create art from a pop culture icon (a la Andy Warhol), he certainly couldn’t have found a better subject for his “motion portrait.” If you’re wondering how we can corner it as art when the film hasn’t even come out Stateside–NYC on September 15th–early reviews reveal that not a whole of actual action happens. The renowned female surfer Kassia Meador even acts a stunt double for the actual surfing scenes. Apologies for the lack of a Spoiler Alert.
The slow pace of the film is one of the reasons that it’s so interesting Thomas Bangalter got involved. After all, the soundtrack to a non-eventful beach scene is not what we expect from Daft Punk. The good news is that at least one of them is actually doing something musical. Rumors have been flying around that the legendary French duo has been working on something with Giorgio Moroder, but we all know how Daft Punk rumors go. Remember that Summer concert at Yankee Stadium? Exactly.
All you need to know is that my favorite female is back and looking pretty f*cking good on the big screen. I can’t think of the last time I’ve seen her actually looking this put together. Here’s just a small teaser for you to get excited about. If you care more about the “important moments,” we’ve found some screen-caps for you below.
