The Canyons

Miami Beach Cinematheque. From September 11 through 14, 2013.

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.

Directed by Paul Schrader / 2013 / 100mins. Written by Bret Easton Ellis. With Lindsay Lohan, James Deen, Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks.
