An Inside Look into Crazy Town

Stephen Roderick of the Times does a fantastic job chronicling the production of the low-budget film "The Canyons," written by the infamous Brett Easton Ellis (think Less Than Zero) and starring the much-more infamous Lindsay Lohan.

The takeaway?  

It took two months and the quasi intervention of Lohan’s father to get Lohan to finish two hours of looping for the outdoor scenes. In the interim, Lohan punched a psychic, was accused of hitting a pedestrian in New York, was under investigation by the I.R.S. and watched her parents melt down on a very special episode of “Dr. Phil."

Sounds like the paradigm of an Ellis character to me!
