The Last Days of Left Eye

Produced by VH1, this 2006 video documentary uses footage shot for a planned autobiographical documentary about Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, the brash MC for the hugely successful R & B trio TLC. This source material was recorded during a monthlong stay in Honduras, but a few days before the trip ended, Lopes was killed in a freak auto accident. The interviews show her trying to come clean about her strained relationship with her bandmates and her tempestuous personal life (including the 1994 incident in which she torched the mansion of her boyfriend, NFL star Andre Rison). Director Lauren Lazin makes no effort to include differing perspectives, but Lopes's candor and optimism make this a poignant self-portrait. 87 min.
