Seriously, are we going to be watching another downfall? Is Lindsay Lohan going to clean up her act, and according to Oprah, “cut the bull—-?” Lindsay, LiLo, girl seriously, if it’s your LAST shot at doing what you love, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to help make things easier? If that means going to AA Meetings and getting sober, and you know that will help you–do it. But again, things are easier said than done. It’s going to be interesting to see Lindsay Lohan attempt to have her life documented while trying to get the sober-happy part of her life back. Honestly, it looks very intriguing. I’ve always thought that Lindsay Lohan had acting talent, and that her personal problems seeped over to her professional life, making her career take several hits along the way. I am also rooting for her to succeed. I want her to clean up her act. I want to see her succeed. I, like Oprah, want her to, “cut the bull—-” and get her life and career back to where it should be. Ten years ago, she was in the mega-hit Mean Girls. Now, with Oprah at her side, she is in a new documentary series on OWN titled Lindsay. Is she doing it for the attention? I’m not sure. Is she doing it thinking it might get her career ignited again? Who knows? Is she doing it to get her life back on track? I hope so. I really do. If anyone can help Lindsay Lohan become fabulous again it’s Oprah.
YouTube: Re-Defining the Documentary
The documentary has always been one of my favorite genre of film. If done properly, a good documentary can make people rethink how they see the world, and the people who inhabit it. YouTube has been a great place to find films in terms of utilizing it as an archive. You can also discover self-produced indie films, as well as shows from overseas. People have taken to the streets to create documentaries of their everyday lives. In keeping with the “Food on Film” theme, I found a documentary that I can’t find anywhere BUT YouTube from a producer in the UK. The documentary itself even has its own channel of the same name, Health Food Junkies, which deals exclusively with the raw food diet. I found it fascinating because I couldn’t actually find it on Netflix; and, as far as my research goes, it has not been distributed and is independently produced. Is this the new wave of documentaries? As a filmmaker, you are able to reach a broader audience in the comfort of their own home. Therefore, it might be to your benefit to publicize your film via YouTube. Remember Kony 2012? The campaign became a famous one due to the 26 minute documentary on YouTube.
Here, for your viewing is the documentary Health Food Junkies. I am including it because I think it is interesting that this film decided to upload it to YouTube. I really haven’t heard anything else about it other than what’s publicized on the popular site.
DISCLAIMER: I am only including it to highlight people’s ability to make readily-available documentaries. My views and opinions about diet are not necessarily reflected within this film. It is in 3 parts and uploaded to one channel:
Whether it is a documentary, archive footage, or an entire rare film, YouTube has become a valuable resource for filmmakers and actors alike.
