Badly acted, badly written, badly shot and badly edited. I watched it because I thought it might have some aesthetic atmospheric quality but it does not. I like Lindsay Lohan but she is sleepy eyed and raspy voiced through out. The cast did not have any chemistry. There is literally no reason to watch this unless you actually get some enjoyment out of films which are horribly put together.

Was there even a script?

There really isn't much to say about this movie. Despite it being from Bret Easton Ellis, there wasn't much to this film...let alone much that would make it interesting.

I think it settles the question of "Can the novelist write for the screen?"...and the answer is a resounding "No."

Story
First of all, the plot sounds a lot more interesting than how the film a... read more

The best Schrader in years. Tight, fluent, well located in LA, the city without center. Movies are dead, as the cinemas in ruins showed in stills, sex is the only survivor, mixed with sadism. Best actor: James Deen.

"Paul Schraderin kengännauhabudjetin kickstarter-kokeilu on aika sietämätöntä katseltavaa. Viinanpöhöinen ja raspikurkkuinen Lindsay Lohan, pornotähti James Deen sekä muutama nimetön, näyttelijäkyvytön pornonukke leikkivät sänkyhippaa kuvauspaikkoina toimineissa kuvausryhmän tuttavien hulppeissa asunnoissa Hollywoodin kukkuloilla. Kaikki on hyvin, hyvin kökköä ja kokonaisuus muistuttaakin lähinnä soft core -elokuvaa, jossa läähpuuhäksiöniä on vain 90 prosenttia vähemmä"

The Canyons

“Somehow Paul Schrader is behind the lens of this limp-dick erotic thriller? Man, we’re a long way off from the atmosphere and palpable tension of his greatest films, like the screenplay for Taxi Driver or his directorial work in Affliction. Just as two examples of his intellectual movie-making prowess.   The Canyons is a thinly plotted short story stretched out to feature length and filmed with a group of actors that deliver performances that feel like amateurs stumbling through it all. It somehow makes perfect sense that the two lead roles are occupied by a porn star trying to go mainstream and a former child star turned tabloid burnout. Well, it makes sense in an intensely perverse way.   Eventually The Canyons reveals itself as an awkward subpar softcore. There’s nudity galor” read more

"PREFERABLY SEE THE REAL CANYONS Movie was mainly boring and the relationship deceite dull to watch. Lindsay Lohan managed pretty well in her role, but adult actor James Deen's performance was more like hilarious than intimidating psychopath, what he tried to play. Could've taken few more acting class before shooting hes scenes. Also the quality of the movie and directing was pretty amateurlike. Same as writing and editing. Director was clearly tring to make this some kind of artistic film, but "
