New Trailer For Lindsay Lohan's The Canyons
Paul Schrader's micro-budget movie arrives

If you haven't read The New York Times' astonishing fly-on-the-wall piece about the making of crowd-funded Hollywood flick The Canyons, you should rectify that immediately. It's a micro-budget Hearts Of Darkness and Burden Of Dreams rolled into one sun-drenched LA nightmare. There are budget crises, location crises, and Lindsay Lohan crises, all of which left director Paul Schrader clinging to his sanity like a mountain goat with particularly greasy hooves.

Read it? Excellent. Now watch The Canyons' new trailer and marvel that an actual movie has emerged from the jaws of possible disaster. It's got plenty of Lohan philosophising and a Gus Van Sant cameo, although what exactly it's about remains cloudy.



What we do know is that screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis has crafted a Less Than Zero-y piece which follows a group of twentysomethings who get into sex and crime in Los Angeles. Lohan stars alongside adult movie actor James Deen.

The Canyons
will be out in the US in selected theatres and on iTunes from August 2.
