Watch 'The Canyons' Trailer, Which Perfectly Describes Lindsay Lohan
One review included in the trailer for The Canyons calls the film "an acid-sketched horror story of souls." The review might be referring to the movie itself — about the relationship between a movie producer and his cheating girlfriend — or the stars of the film, Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen.
After all, The Canyons is the film that inspired Stephen Rodrick's addictive New York Magazine read titled "Here's What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan In Your Movie." (Spoiler alert: The troubled actress shows up late, regularly bawls on set, and tries to get you to cast her friends.) And almost every line included in the trailer for the film — released Aug. 2 — can just as easily be describing Lohan. Namely:
"Nobody has a private life anymore."
"When's the last time you went to see a movie in the theater? A movie that you really thought meant something to you? I don't know. I guess it's just not my thing anymore."
It certainly seems like movies aren't Lohan's thing anymore — the actress' stilted delivery proves Rodrick's accounts that filming was hardly a priority for the actress. That said, The Canyons — written by American Psycho's Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Taxi Driver's Paul Schrader — certainly will be great drinking game fodder for your next summer party. After all, we would never expect a movie that inspired this would make us feel like this:
