Lindsay Lohan's 'The Canyons' snubbed by SXSW Film Festival


Embattled actress Lindsay Lohan has been dealt another blow after her latest movie, "The Canyons," was rejected by organizers of the Austin, Texas, South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival.

The erotic thriller has been denied a screening slot because it suffers from "quality issues" and has "an ugliness and a deadness to it," a SXSW source tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The snub comes just a week after bosses of the Sundance Film Festival opted not to feature "The Canyons" during the 10-day independent cinema event in Utah. Director Paul Schrader's movie, which features Lohan opposite porn star James Deen, was written by "American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis.

Lindsay Lohan couldn't act her way out of a paper bag at this point in her meager career.  If she only had sense enough to go away and clean up her act, and come back stronger than ever, there'd be a world of fans awaiting her comeback.  But now, she's just sad and tired!!!

Embattled actress?  Makes it sound like she is being picked on.  All of her "battle" wounds are self inflicted.

If she's embattled, look no further than her inner demons or whatever possesses her to act (no pun intended) the way she does.

James Deen is the Ryan Gosling of porno movies. He's a danger to men everywhere.

Did no one see her in Liz & Dick. Honestly I only saw clips from that movie, and sure enough my 3 year old could do a better acting job. Which is sad to say because I use to have a soft spot for Lindsay when she was in the quirky funny movies. Now she down right sucks. Who would have ever guessed that you could lose the ability to act?
