Paul Schrader and Bret Easton Ellis' adventure in relatively-microbudget cinema: THE CANYONS.


Quote from Paul Schrader, who long ago made films as diverse as BLUE COLLAR and PATTY HEARST: “The number one fact of the new low-budget cinema is that it is no longer impossible to get your film financed, but it is impossible to get anybody to see it."

And the difficulty is quadrupled when your film is rejected by Austin's SXSW festival and emerges into an environment where people would rather laugh cruelly at Lindsay Lohan and her ongoing self-destruction/social skills decline than actually see a movie she stars in for a still-reputable, still-hanging-in-there veteran director.
