The trailer for Lindsay Lohan’s new movie The Canyons almost seems like a parody, in both good and bad ways. It pokes fun at the movie’s writer Bret Easton Ellis, calling him a “Twitter-obsessed author” and brags about the “never-nominated director.” The black and white teaser also plays off the real lives of Lohan and co-star James Deen, who previously worked in porn, referring to them as sensuous and potent.
Poking fun at the movie is a smart idea to move past all the real life personal drama weighing the movie down. However, they revealed so little about the plot that it’s hard to tell what it’s actually about. The noir film from director Paul Scrader chronicles a sexy woman (Lohan) torn between two lovers. It explores the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition among young people circa 2012.

Author of such acclaimed books like American Physcho and Less Than Zero, Bret Easton Ellis, is taking a less than kind approach on the topic of teen bullying.
Bret, an openly gay writer, is once again disconnecting with gay youth by writing on his Twitter page that they need to “man up”.
Of all the news and videos going viral of young kids discussing how they’re constantly bullied, you’d think a person like Bret would be more sympathetic and use his celebrity status to do something about this epidemic.
The same guy that once said watching Glee is like “stepping into a puddle of HIV” is now the guy who’s turning the other cheek to bullying. How many more teens have to commit suicide before a chump like Bret finally realizes how insensitive he’s being?
