Thread: The Canyons (2013) Paul Schrader

    The Canyons (2013) Paul Schrader

    Wow...What a story THIS one has behind it..

    Total nightmare by all accounts....

    Directed by Paul Schrader
    Written by Brett Easton Ellis
    Starring Lindsey Lohan and James Deen (porn star)

    Everyone is pissed at Lohan for being a bitch and unprofessional on set
    Ellis is pissed at Schrader for turning his black-comic tale into something else

    Schrader is pissed coz SUNDANCE rejected it and everyone is laughing at it!

    Is it gonna be SHOWGIRLS level of train wreck????

    Did they make it look that shitty on purpose? Holy cow. That looks like it might be the crappiest film for many many years! Also, since James Deen has crossed over to "real film" from porn, is Lindsay Lohan gonna to the opposite?

    It was partly funded on one of those KICKSTARTER donation pages....

    They wanted to do a "micro budget " film noir kind of deal......I think this boards own DOM D has made a FAR better noir film than this one......

    The most shocking thing about this is the talent behind the camera is pretty good....Even GUS VAN SANT is ACTING in the movie!!

    James Deen actually has a pretty good knack for comedic acting.

    When I saw him at the AVN's a few years back he was running up and down the red carpet with a drink in his hand yelling 'FUCK YEAH, PORNO.'

    I'd give this a chance because of Schrader.

    Oh well.

    Shrader has real talent. He can pull off a micro-budget film if he scrapes the sh it off his shoes.

    Let's hope he pulls the coin together and attempts another.

    Agreed. I'm not without a reasonable amount of faith in him - he's got enough decent stuff in his list of directorial credits that I'd give this a shot based on his name alone.
