Trailer Park: Paul Schrader's The Canyons

Ask Paul Schrader a question. Details inside.

None

Paul Schrader has a new film opening and guess who snared an interview?

That's right: Lickona!

No offense, but that'll be the day!

During the production, the tabloids made much ado about The Canyons. Schrader did not write the screenplay. That honor went to Hollywood bad boy Bret Easton Ellis (Less Than Zero, American Psycho). By now you've probably heard that is destined not only to be Lindsay Lohan's return to serious acting (I thought that was supposed to be Liz and Dick), but this year's big crossover performance by porn star, James Deen.

Any questions for Mr. Schrader? Never before have I extended such an offer to my readers. The last thing I want to do is check back tomorrow and find the comments section blank. Ask away! Here's your chance.

Before watching the movie, I had to take a look at the trailer. Good god, does this look less than bleak.

Mr. Schraeder: In retrospect, do you think it was a good thing or a bad thing to allow the fellow from the New York Times to hang out during filming? Why or why not?

or:

Describe the sort of person for whom this film will become a cult favorite.

Great questions. I will ask both.

Mr. Schraeder: In taxi driver and in this film you treat the city as a character, not just a backdrop...what is the relationship between the story, characters and locations your films? And what turned you on to this type of filmmaking?

Done! Thanks!

Mr. Schrader: Richard Gere is a class act, both on and off screen. Did he come to "American Gigolo" through his agent, or did you contact him directly? I understand he's real picky about scripts and movie projects.

Thanks, dw. Keep 'em coming!
