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.

Bing: Lohan's law troubles

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.

I've always had quality issues with Paul Schrader films. Lindsay Lohan just took the hit for him. Lindsay still needs to give up. She is a point where she can no longer do her "job" properly. I don't even think at this point she could handle a part time job at target which she would be lucky to get. . . . . . On the other hand Paul Schrader has been surviving by making odd peculiar films that are sometimes so pretentious that critics give them good reviews because they don't want to acknowledge they don't understand them.

quality issues, ugliness and deadness. DUH, Lohan is in it. Of course it lacks quality, she is butt ugly and we all wish her career was dead.

She is talented, she is wacky and we all know wacky chicks are the best sex ever. There are plenty of wacky actors in Hollywood. Who cares what she does it will either work out or she'll go down in flames. Either way it doesn't change my paycheck. Leave her alone.

Well, if Lindsay Lohan was ever hoping to go back to mainstream acting, I must say, this choice just killed any chances she had...

Who's advising her on career plans?  Ron Jeremy?
