About the Movie
This movie has been modified by the distributor for its original theatrical version. Notorious writer Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) and acclaimed director Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver and director of American Gigolo) join forces for this explicitly erotic thriller about youth, glamour, sex and surveillance. Manipulative and scheming young movie producer Christian (adult film star James Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact, while his actress girlfriend and bored plaything, Tara (Lindsay Lohan), hides a passionate affair with an actor from her past. When Christian becomes aware of Tara's infidelity, the young Angelenos are thrust into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An inept, misanthropic melodrama written by novelist Bret Easton Ellis and funded mostly through a Kickstarter campaign.
Rotten: If the creation of self-important tedium were a competitive sport, "The Canyons" would take home the gold.
Rotten: Schrader just seems angry, as if he's using this film as a tinny megaphone for an announcement of his displeasure with a Hollywood that's left him behind.
Rotten: A tale of young, vapid, sexually insatiable Z-listers in Hollywood had the credentials to be deliciously awful fun but almost every time something tawdry (and potentially interesting) is about to happen, the film pulls its punches and leaves the action.
LINDSAY IS BACK
So excited to see this! Im a huge Lindsay fan. We all know she is an amazing actress and I'm so glad this is getting some positive reviews. Anyone who gives it a negitive review is missing the true art that this film is.
Much better than anticipated.
I saw The Canyons last night and it was amazing. Lindsay did an amazing job in this movie. I'm also going to see it in theater Saturday night with some friends and I can't wait to see there reaction. Prepare to be amazed. LILO fan 4 life
