Director Paul Schrader isn't very happy with Lindsay Lohan since the actress hasn't been doing press for The Canyons.
"I am mystified and disappointed by LL's refusal to support The Canyons," Schrader writes. "She is a producer of the film, a 25% owner. She has received wonderful reviews (among the negative) for her performance."
"I hired her when no one else would," the Taxi Driver writer says. "She fought to keep the role when I wanted to fire her for unreliability. She has no other films in the can."
Lohan skipped out on the screening of The Canyons at the Venice Film Festival in August, which annoyed Schrader then, who said, "She was supposed to be here today. She said she would, but she is not."
The reviews were never great for the film, but Lohan did receive some praise, The Huffington Post notes. Scott Foundas of Variety found Lohan to be "fascinating" in the film. Richard Brody of The New Yorker had said it was "hard to imagine another actress of Lohan's generation who would bring such an emotional force to the role of a struggling actress."
