After a trio of parody teasers, we’ve finally got our first true look at Paul Schrader‘s erotic Los Angeles-set drama The Canyons with a three-minute clip. But before we get to that, we must highlight an early contender for the year’s best behind-the-scenes article, as The New York Times recently published an expose on the strenuous production.
While it mostly revolves around the battle between star Lindsay Lohan and just about everyone involved, it includes some noteworthy tidbits, such as Steven Soderbergh offering to edit the Bret Easton Ellis-scripted film (he was turned down), the film getting rejected from Sundance, as well as our director needing to strip down in order for a key scene to occur.

Check out the clip below and head over to the above link to read the article, as the film is attempting to pick up distribution for a release this year.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
