Movie Info

During her lifetime, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes earned an international reputation as a singer and rapper with the popular R&B group TLC. However, Lopes also became known as a wild child with a reckless streak; she burned down the house she shared with her boyfriend when she suspected him of infidelity, she had a reputation for abusing alcohol, she often feuded with her band mates and record company executives, and was blocking out plans to make her own solo album before she died in an auto accident in the spring of 2002. Lopes spent the last month of her life in Honduras, where she lived in a small jungle village where she was working towards spiritually centering and re-energizing herself before directing her life and career in a more positive way. While in Honduras, Lopes shot a great deal of "home movie" video footage of herself enjoying her peaceful retreat from stardom and discussing her checkered past and hoped-for future; this footage has become the basis of The Last Days of Left Eye, a documentary which examines the final weeks of this troubled but talented artist. Produced for the cable music network VH1, The Last Days of Left Eye was screened as part of the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Last Days of Left Eye

Great spiritual journey about Left Eye and her journey through her cleansing in the Honduras. I wasn't a fan first time I saw this,but now I am,but not so much the band as Left Eye herself. She was a very good person and I'm sad she's gone. She had some wild times in her life,but she's a good person. It was alos a highlight for horror fans whne it showed her last moments in the crash. Wow! Overall,epic.

I saw this on VH1. It's sad that she is gone. She was a pretty good rapper in the group TLC. R.I.P. Lisa Lopes.
