Eerie and also ultimately sad - a woman documents her quest for wellness while giving also an overview of her life
20 May 2007 | by mrncatSee all my reviews

While I'm familiar with Lisa Lopez ("Left Eye") and with the three women hip hop group, TLC, that she was a part of, I'm not a fan per se of their group. However when I became aware of TLC in the late 1990s I was curious enough to watch their videos and gather some information about them. When Lisa died I remember thinking how sad it was that a woman of her talent and energy died so young. This film is what it's title says -- it is literally a documentary filmed during the last month of Lisa Lopez's ("Left Eye") life. What it does also is give background and insight into her life up to that point (age 30) as Lisa herself saw it; included are photos of her growing up, her family, her former husband, and her music and performances with TLC. What makes this unusual is that the film chronicles her upbringing from her own viewpoint and allows you the viewer to see the changes that she has made. What makes this ultimately eerie and sad is that Lisa seemed to have some foreshadowing of her death and yet her attitude toward this strange inevitability is one of acceptance and deep spiritual transcendence.
