DIRECTOR: PAUL SCHRADER

CAST: LINDSAY LOHAN

Announced in the press by extra-cinematic controversy, an intrepid attempt to imagine a post-cinematic cinema, Schrader’s conceptual sex-thriller is, among other things, a rumination on the impact of the Extremely Online era on both image-making culture and intimacy. Bret Easton Ellis’s screenplay describes the hookup app-curated encounters between a quartet of comfortably numb Los Angelinos, portrayed by Amanda Brooks, Nolan Funk, a magnificent Lindsay Lohan, and porn star James Deen, playing La Lohan’s well-heeled, morally vacuous, and increasingly sinister boyfriend.
