Paul Schrader, who directed Lindsay Lohan in The Canyons, bashed his leading lady in a Facebook post for her lack of support behind the low-grossing film.

Schrader Wednesday wrote that he was "mystified and disappointed" at Lindsay's lack of support and promotion for the IFC Films release, which cast the tabloid queen along porn star James Deen.

He said he hired the actress "when no one else would" and hesitantly kept her on after "she fought to keep the role when I wanted to fire her for unreliability."

In return, Lindsay barely acknowledged the film when it came out, and passed on cooperating with magazines like The New Yorker and Film Comment, which would have elevated the movie's profile with feature pieces about the actress.

Worse, he said, Lohan "never showed for the photo sessions, including the session for the ad campaign art," and "did not show" after he "shifted the film's European premiere from Locarno to Venice so she could make her promised post-rehab appearance."

He concluded saying he wants Lohan to "move forward, have a healthy life and, if possible, a career," but that he disagrees "with her decision to (passively not aggressively) turn her back on Canyons."

The Canyons is available via VOD and iTunes.
