Beautiful and Unique,
This movie is beyond anything I've seen. The first time I watched it, I thought I would know every twist and turn. I prepared myself. But throughout the film I became filled with all these emotions for these characters. Mary "Mouse" Bradford, Pauline Oster, and Victoria Moller were all differently and beatifically captured by Lea Pool's artistic eye. The story follows three girls in a boarding school, two who have fallen in love and the other caught in the middle of the drama. Both the script and performances are memorable and emotional. As the story unfolded, I started to care for Paulie's grand show of love, Tori's fears, and Mouses' confusion towards the loyalties of both friends. I watched the most heart-wrenching scene ever-depicted on screen. Tori tells her sister that nothing really happened between her and Paulie --- the camera goes into slow motion, the song Beautiful by Me'Shell Ndgeocello comes on and Tori realized she just betrayed Paulie. The movie progresses towards a shocking ending and is filled with symbolism and Shakespearean poetry. Lea Pool has captured first love and all it's anguish. Love is love and transcends beyond anything "because love is! It just is because nothing you can say can make it go away because it is the point of why we are here. It is the highest point and once you are up there, looking down on everyone else, you are there forever." as Paulie puts it.
Lost and delirious is a very beautiful and unique film, which deals with the implications of love. The film captures what love really is, an all-encompassing,life-affirming feeling. I truly, madly, deeply recommend this film.
