We know what some of you are thinking–
"Uh, so there is still talent somewhere deep inside Lindsay Lohan?? You mean, her inneresting performance as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick could have just been a fluke? As well as I Know Who Killed Me and Herbie Fully Loaded and Georgia Rule?!"
Sure sounds like it because gurlfriend has scored herself a rave review for The Canyons!
Not only that, but she was compared to the legendary Marlon Brando, which is pretty much the absolute best compliment LiLo has ever received. Like ever!
"The major exception is Lohan, who gives one of those performances, like Marlon Brando’s in Last Tango in Paris, that comes across as some uncanny conflagration of drama and autobiography. Lohan may not go as deep or as far as Brando, but with her puffy skin, gaudy hoop earrings and thick eye makeup, there’s a little-girl-lost quality to the onetime Disney teen princess that’s very affecting. Whenever she’s onscreen, she projects a sense of just barely holding on to that precarious slide area in the shadow of the Hollywood sign."
And you better believe a compliment like this didn't slip past lil' LiLo!
Even though she's busy rehabbing for a couple more days, she was apparently able to get in some Twitter time as she reacted:

We're not sure what to expect once she's released, but hopefully this positive review will help her stay on the straight and narrow.
Or maybe it'll just go straight to her head…
