Lindsay Lohan received some of her best reviews in recent years for her work in last summer's "The Canyons," but director Paul Schrader is "disappointed" in her off-screen work. Schrader, the acclaimed writer of "Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull" and "The Last Temptation of Christ," took to the film's Facebook page on Wednesday to express his dismay, writing that he was "mystified" Lohan didn't do more to back "The Canyons" in the press. Lohan's lead turn in the film was called "fascinating" by famed Variety critic Scott Foundas, while The New Yorker's Richard Brody -- whom Schrader mentions in the Facebook post -- wrote that it was "hard to imagine another actress of Lohan’s generation who would bring such emotional force to the role of a struggling actress."
