midweek matinee: The Canyons
even Bret Easton Ellis called this a cold, dead movie . . . about cold, dead people. and it is so classically his work. an hour and a half of fucked up people with too much money and too few morals doing fucked up things to themselves and each other. depressing and fantastic. the story of how it got made and the drama around that and the players involved is maybe even more interesting than the film, itself. i remember reading some of it on Bret’s Twitter feed a while back and just loved watching how it all came together.
