Lindsay Lohan Channels Her Inner Bardot
By Aaron Hicklin
After doing Marilyn Monroe for New York Magazine, Lindsay Lohan is now referencing French sex kitten and verified nut-job Brigitte Bardot for a video by artist Richard Phillips that will debut at the Venice Biennale. The 90-second video draws on Jean-Luc Godard's 1963 movie, Contempt, about the breakdown of a marriage between a movie director and his wife, as well as on Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, which starred 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 told New York Times writer Linda Yablonsky. “She’s a combination of the fantastic and the real, which is what makes her so magnetic."
