Thought this week I would give some competing reviews, rather than stick to my favorite New York Times movie review site.
As ever, the viewers will be the judges...
'The Canyons' review by Manohla Dargis in The New York Times wrties of a film (that) "...is a dispiriting, unpleasurable work punctuated with flashes of vitalizing vulgarity. It isn’t a good movie in terms of the conventional norms (acting for starters), but it also exhibits a crude integrity."

Compare and contrast with ".. If the subtext of this misbegotten parade of lame shock tactics is the death of cinema, then The Canyons certainly knows how to nail the coffin shut. "
