    Review and Roundup: In Defense of Paul Schrader's Misunderstood 'The Canyons'

    Like the film's infamously trying production and its central character Tara -- who Lindsay Lohan acts the hell out of -- "Canyons" careens wildly from one extreme to the next. But it isn't just so-bad-it's-good kitsch. "The Canyons" ultimately is good, hard to admire, yes, but harder to look away fr...

    The lead-up of Kanye West's sixth album Yeezus was swift and minimal— songs cobbled into form by Rick Rubin, non-existent cover art and promotion via B&W clips projected onto buildings. The only other big publicity came courtesy of an slightly painful “American Psycho” parody with reality star Scott...
