‘First Point' starring Lindsay Lohan, directed by Richard Phillips. (X)
"Though Phillips insists Lohan wasn’t his “muse” in the traditional sense of the word, there exists a clear compatibility between artist and protagonist. Phillips, an artist working in the vein of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann, is a painter of celebrities, and has long been fascinated by the challenge of portraying our modern icons as works of art. Lohan, simultaneously, has become an icon on her own. Her face is synonymous with something else, and its ubiquity in magazines and on the Web makes it practically wallpaper in our everyday lives."
