Two More Days Of Rehab For Lindsay Lohan - Variety Loves Her In The Canyons

I actually thought about Lindsay Lohan yesterday for the first time in a week or so and it had nothing to do with what she did. Instead, I got an alert to my phone from Variety when they sent out their review of The Canyons. Yeah, I was expecting it to be brutal, but instead, Variety loved it. They especially loved Lindsay in it. I know, I know. It still does not mean I want to watch it or that I would hire her for anything, but they said, "Lindsay Lohan brings a raw conviction to Paul Schrader's ultra-low-budget but handsomely made study of hungry young things clawing at the good life." Raw conviction is not the greatest review ever, but it is the only thing anyone has said positive about Lindsay Lohan's acting since someone said, "Well at least it ended after 90 minutes." Variety also called Lindsay a "fascinating presence."

I can't handle seeing her get praise like that. It is so unusual. What is not unusual is that she is skipping the country right when she gets out of rehab to go to the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of the movie and this is where she will face her greatest challenge. You don't think she is going to want to celebrate? If anything bad is going to happen to Lindsay, it will be in Venice.

A'friend' is sending her to the uk so 'friendly friends'can 'hike' her canyons....

Bet Lindsay fucked and sucked James Deen.

If she survives her first post-rehab binge, I'll be shocked.

Massive G said...

I want to see her sex tape of her banging James Deen.

I can wait to see this but I cant wait to see Diane Lane play Hillary Clinton! Hil must be flattered because I would have chosen some frumpy actress to play her maybe a Cybell Shepherd or someone like her that can act.

Pip said...

Well Dewie is a bundle of sunshine.

The New York Times article made it seem like Deen couldn't stand Lohan.

DewieTheBear said...

No Pip, I'm just realistic. Barring some massive 180 - she changes her social circle, she cuts off relations with her parents - I doubt very much Lindsay is longed for this world.

Sorry I don't don rose-colored glasses like you.

Pip said...

You just come off as a very negative woman. I believe you have already made the exact same statement regarding her post rehab binge.

No rose colored glasses here. Your comments regarding addiction just disgust me at times.

I agree that a film festival out of the country is not the best place to go post-rehab. Doesn't she have travel restrictions placed on her at present? The only way this young woman is going to survive is to avoid the party scene for a very long time. Continue to work, if she must, but red carpet events and parties and film festivals are just full of alcohol and drugs and enablers. You need to have some serious sober time behind you to be able to survive all of that.

Good for Lindsay---everyone deserves to be happy and enjoy successful moments in life. Hopefully she will have a sober coach or something to get her through Venice without using. And of course hopefully Dina will be tied up in an attic gagged and blindfolded somewhere in Jersey where she belongs....

I'm glad she got a great review, I was hoping after the first article some of her talent would still be there. I also hope that she will be able to turn things around but I sincerely doubt it. She has become famous only as a punchline, given that and addiction, that is a tough row to hoe. Plus she comes off as a deluded a&&hole with sticky fingers.

Sorry, not gonna happen. I read somewhere that he was professional the whole time. And that one article (The Times, I think) said he hated her and avoided her at all times.

Weird. Usually everyone is hoping she joins the 27 club
Now everyone is happy for her and wants her to suceed
Jezz, need a score card around here.

HannahBanana said...

Idk but she's been clean for 3 months..I hope she doesn't go out & party like usual, she really could end up like Cory Montieth. As I recall, that's also what happened to Amy Winehouse. They forget their tolerance has been great lowered & drink/smoke like they used too. Scary.

Pretty sure Stoya would not approve!

Ms Cool said...

Haha:

Four things critics hated about Lindsay Lohan's 'The Canyons'

Spike Gomes said...

If she ODs in Venice, I will cock-punch every single columnist that invokes the Thomas Mann short story as their headline. Each and every single one. Without exception. Cock-punch. Because they earned it.

"Guess who's back, back in town? Lindsey's back, warn a friend, nun nun nunnun..."

Good luck, LiLo, get your sh*t straight, girl!

Excellent Barton.

I hope she stays true. Addiction is hard. But I'm not convinced she'll be able to maintain it. And going to Venice will only tempt her.
