The words ‘Lindsay Lohan‘ and ‘art film’ may go together like ‘Anna Nicole Smith’ and ‘Buckingham Palace,’ but try to scrub “I Know Who Killed Me” from your brain for a minute if you can. The house arrest hellion is the star of an two-minute-long art film called “Lindsay Lohan” by Richard Phillips, to be screened eventually by the Gagosian Gallery in L.A.
