Editorial Reviews

Les (Steve Buscemi) is a small-time paparazzi with dreams of getting his embarrassingly funny photos on the front page. His luck seems to take a turn for the better when he befriends a clueless young homeless man, Toby (Michael Pitt), and makes him his unlikely assistant. But when Toby falls for a pop diva and becomes a reality TV star, Les has a tough time being pushed out of the frame and creates a devilish scheme to take down his apprentice. DVD Extras include: a Stalking Delirious Featurette, Promotional Shorts, Director s Commentary, Shove It Music Video, and the Theatrical Trailer

I'm calling it for the record. Writer/director Tom DiCillo must officially be one of our most underrated and underappreciated talents. As a huge fan of 1995's "Living in Oblivion," one of the most on-point satires of the filmmaking process, I followed his career through several more low-key titles before losing track of him altogether. Why "Living in Oblivion," in particular, isn't considered a minor classic is heartbreaking. Relegated these days, it seems, to directing episodic TV--he did emerge on the film festival circuit in 2009 with a Grammy winning documentary on The Doors. But I present all of the build-up because I was astounded to come across the film "Delirious" made in 2006 starring Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt among a plethora of other familiar faces. I've never even heard of the movie! I suppose it's possible that I've seen the movie listing on premium cable channels, but with the meaningless title of "Delirious"--I probably thought it was a rebroadcast of the John Candy extravaganza. And for the record, it is a terrible title that offers nothing about the film itself and truly doesn't fit.

Once again, Dicillo points his lens at the Hollywood machine and the pursuit of fame. The story focuses on a low-level paparazzo (Buscemi) as he befriends and exploits an enthusiastic young homeless man with dreams of being an actor (Pitt). Buscemi is emotionally closed off, but the allure of having a protege that idealizes and needs him starts to soften his tough exterior. The two start working the fame circuit looking for the perfect picture to launch a legitimate business. On a fateful evening at work, Pitt stumbles into the path of a pop starlet played by Alison Lohman.

I have always been a huge fan of Steve Buscemi and try to buy any and every thing he is involved in, this film included and I am glad I own it. This is a strangle little tale that was and indie hit especially at Sundance. I have no idea why it took me so long to review this but I guess later is better than never. This really is a good yet quirky movie, really it is.

The film follows Les Galantine [Buscemi] a paparazzi even though he thinks he is better than that, and a young homeless actor wannabe named Toby Grace [Michael Pitt]. These two come together by chance when Les is waiting to get some shots of a singer/actress played by Alison Lohman. While waiting for her Toby literally runs into him and offers his services as an assistant, his first job is to go get him some coffee. On his way back he gets his first glance of the singer and falls in love. From a weird some what non trusting friendship builds between the two as Les lets Toby live with him if he works for free. As the story moves on we see one succeed in life while the other comes to terms with whom and what he truly is.

This is a crazy story full of betrayal and backstabbing and not just between the two lead characters. Writer/director Tom DiCillo did a wonderful job with this film particularly with the script. The story and characters are excellent and some of the most interesting I have seen in a while. And his direction is top notch showing us this film through his eyes, very interesting tale of life on the outside edge of the fast lane.

Steve Buscemi is brilliant as usual in this film and is nothing short of becoming this character named Les. He is a guy who try's to live like he is better than what he is, a paparazzi.

Sure, Steve Buscemi has been around since the 80's and became a star with the release of Reservoir Dogs but he didn't often get the chance to shine on his own until Fargo. His characterization of an acidic paparazzi is spellbinding. His co-star is Michael Pitt who became a star himself on Boardwalk Empire. Don't miss this movie. It's worth every minute.

In "Delirious," Les (played by Steve Buscemi), a jittery, disorganized and neurotic paparazzo, takes in a scruffy, homeless kid named Toby (Micheal Pitt)for a night and then decides to make Toby his (go-fer) assistant. But the middle-aged Les is a great pretender. He's actually a scrounging bottom-feeder, a deluded dreamer who teaches Toby some of the tricks of his trade--everything from gate-crashing high- and low-end parties for the free buffet spreads to swiping goodie bags from glitzy premiers and media events. Toby, however, turns out to be trustworthy, calm, sweet-natured and, most importantly, a very good looking young man who soon attracts the attentions of a casting agent (Gina Gershon) and, later still, a troubled starlet (Alison Lohman). Pulled up from the bottom, Toby becomes a star, leaving a jealous, possessive and increasingly infuriated Les to stew in his own grungy, hand-to-mouth existence. "Delirious" is ostensibly about the men's hard-bitten relationship. But as written and directed by Tom DiCillo, this independently-made film is actually a very tart commentary on the symbiotic relationship between media-driven infatuation and the fishbowl of celebrity culture--although "Delirious" is less cynical and far less fatalistic than its prototype, "Midnight Cowboy" (the 1969 X-rated Oscar-winning movie which starred Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight in comparable roles). As with "Midnight Cowboy," there is an undeniable core of feeling that develops between the two characters. Overall, this is an above-average movie that is definitely worth checking out!
