How Do You Improve ‘The Canyons’ Trailer? The Same Way You Improve Everything. Add Kanye West.

The Canyons hasn’t exactly enjoyed good press since the proejct was announced. There was the Lohan piece in The New York Times, the film festival snubs, and a general sense of dread in the critical world.

However, all those hiccups seem to disappear when you put the film against a near-perfect Kanye West song. It fits the nihilistic mood well, and adds a gravity to the film that actually feels organic.

The quality of the film certainly remains to be seen, but this trailer gets two thumbs up.
