I’m not as familiar with Paul Schrader’s work as I should be. After all, he wrote one of my favorite films of all time, TAXI DRIVER. I’ve only seen a few of his directorial outings: THE TOUCH, which was awful! And AUTO FOCUS, which was brilliant. I will say that I appreciate his ambition no matter what subject he tackles, which is usually pretty provocative. This time he has made a movie starring Lindsey Lohan and porn star James Deen (he makes a great Robin, btw), and judging from the trailer looks to be modeled after 70’s exploitation films. I hope the film is as good as this teaser. It’s called THE CANYONS, and at this moment does not have a release date. I’m assuming sometime next year.
