Directed by Paul Schrader (at great personal cost)


My pal Gord sent me this fascinating article on the making of Paul Schrader’s low-budget offering, “The Canyons”.

Credit Shrader with a good deal of nerve–casting the notoriously, ah, mercurial Lindsay Lohan was a risky proposition…as he soon found out.

A lengthy article but an excellent look at the nuts and bolts of producing a film on the cheap. Interesting that a director with the skill and experience of Schrader has to go begging to Kickstarter for production funds.

Doesn’t bode well, does it?
