The Canyons ★★★

Finally, a Bad Movie I can actually get behind. The logical conclusion to that old “I watch porn for the plot” riff—here’s ninety-nine minutes of porn plot. This is clearly supposed to be totally sex-charged and trashy, but everything is played completely serious, and that push-pull is kind of thrilling in addition to being embarrassing. Lindsay Lohan...really does something special here; truth be told, I miss her, I really do, I hope she pulls it together someday.... 

Anyway, this whole thing is so deeply awful and yet made with so much style and clear intent that I can’t shake it.
