The video was directed by Bruno Aveillan, who was also behind the wonderful ‘L’Odyssée de Cartier’ ad from earlier in the year.
I’m currently reading ‘American Psycho’ by Bret Easton Ellis. I haven’t seen the film yet, but if a film is based on a book then I usually like to read the book first. This means that there are always loads of films I’ve put off seeing, because I haven’t had time to read the novel first, but oh well.
Before I started reading ‘American Psycho’, I had just read ‘Notes On A Scandal’ by Zoë Heller. This book was so horribly disappointing, pompous and bourgeois that I needed something exciting, violent and funny to cleanse my palate. ‘American Psycho’ was the obvious choice. Obviously there have been some parts in it that have made me wince (animal torture, rape…you get the picture), but the book is supposed to be a black comedy and there are some parts in it that have really tickled me, most notably this one, where Patrick Bateman recalls watching a talk show on Nazis:
One of the Nazis, in a rare display of humour, even juggled grapefruits and, delighted, I sat up in bed and clapped.
I love the absurdity of this mental image! If it’s included in the film adaptation, I will probably sit up and clap too.
The first trailer for The Canyons is incredibly disappointing. Written by Bret Easton Ellis, the film sees Lindsay Lohan return to the silver screen and, according to IMDb, it’s a Thriller.
Not that you’d know that from this underwhelming trailer though – the only thing you’d get from this is that it’s set in L.A. This glossy video montage reminds me of a mixture of Gossip Girl and Made In Chelsea, if either of those shows were set in Los Angeles. Considering the song that’s been used is a mellow, self-indulgent number by Dum Dum Girls, it feels as though you’re definitely anticipating for the film to cut to Serena Van Der Woodsen checking her phone, or Millie Mackintosh tearfully packing her bags…you know, it just looks like some scripted reality/aspirational TV drama “filler” shots. While the shots themselves are beautiful, there’s just no action in this trailer at all. The aim may have been to make it appear enigmatic and mysterious, but the final outcome is that it looks as though nothing really happens in The Canyons, or that the trailer has been badly made. I want to like this film, so I hope it’s the latter and this teaser is just a bad attempt at, well…teasing.
