Want to See What Lindsay Lohan's House Arrest is Like? Watch This Art Film!

Poor Lindsay Lohan. Her jewelry theft case has landed her in an awful, awful place...a swanky home in Malibu, with a beautiful pool and view of the ocean. Damn the U.S. justice system and their overly harsh methods of punishment for celebrities!

Anyway, while Lindsay has been chilling at her mansion, a filmmaker by the name of Richard Phillips managed to visit and shoot a short art film with her. So, Lindsay still manages to get on camera, even when she's under house arrest.

The film is an interesting one: Phillips based it off of the 1960's new wave films "Contempt" by Godard and "Persona" by Ingmar Bergman. In an interview with theĀ New York Times, Phillips compared Lohan to the likes of Liv Ullman and Brigitte Bardot.

"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."

Are we talking about the same person? Lindsay Lohan, star of "Herbie Fully Loaded"?

Okay, so maybe Phillips has a point. When you watch the video, you can see there's something undeniably engaging about Lohan. She draws you in with just a look, whether you like it or not. And I don't think it's just because of the bikini.
