It’s ok, you can cry if you need to. I’ll wait.
Ok? Now that you’re a little more stable, we can actually talk about this. See, Lindsay Lohan‘s brand new movie, The Canyons, is pretty highly anticipated, but for all the wrong reasons. People want to see how bad she’s going to be. Because she’s going to be really, really bad.
This was posted on The Canyon‘s Facebook page from the director of the film:
After the NYT Mag piece, many have asked when the film will be shown. It’s going to be a few months. The intense reactions to Liz and Dick and the Times Mag article have made us realize that there will be an immediate blowback once The Canyons is publically screened–for good and ill. That’s the nature of anything involving Lindsay (plus BEE and JD, who also elicit visceral reactions). Therefore, when the film is shown it should also be available VOD and limited theatrical. That way the curious can see the film for themselves. I am told it takes 3-4 months to organize a proper VOD release. After Sundance we’ll screen the film for multi-platform distributors and set the process in motion. In a way it’s good we’re not at Sundance. We weren’t prepared, we weren’t organized. Films enter festivals to heighten their profile. The Canyons doesn’t need to do that. We need to organize multi-platform distribution. This is not a dodge, it’s common sense. The film is very good. I have no qualms about that. Paul S.
We all read the Times story, right? If you haven’t, go do that, and you’ll realize why it made everyone want more information on this movie. This delay will also make sense to you. That piece was rough.
Also, I love how they made it into a good thing that the movie got turned down for a showing at Sundance. Because who would want that, right? Only losers. Stupid losers.
