5 Reasons To Be Obsessed With “The Canyons”

One of the year’s most buzzed about movies, The Canyons had a long, and well-documented production that included a Kickstarter campaign and a now legendary New York Times article detailing the ups and downs of its lead actress, Lindsay Lohan. Through all the drama and the scandal, director Paul Schraeder brought his and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis’ vision to fruition and in the process, a star is born — namely, straight porn star James Deen, making his mainstream film debut alongside Lohan. As if that wasn’t enough, we found a few more reasons to obsess over The Canyons.


– Lindsay Lohan’s gotten her best reviews since her life became a perpetual tabloid headline.


– James Deen kissed a boy and frankly, he didn’t mind it.


– It’s available on on demand pretty much everywhere, including iTunes, Amazon and YouTube meaning you can watch it from the comfort of your disco bed.


– Nolan Funk is giving us blue speedo steel.


– Lindsay’s face is pretty fucking epic. We can look at this cat eye and bun look all day…and have been. Openly.
