'Delirious' is, Well, Delirious

Maui Time | August 16, 2007
Eccentric New York paparazzi Les Galantine (Steve Buscemi) befriends homeless kid Toby Grace (Michael Pitt) and shelters the young dreamer in his small apartment in return for cheap labor. The awkward relationship gets stickier when Les ruins Toby's chances with his latest love, pop diva K'Harma Leeds (Alison Lohman) at her celebrity-attended birthday party. Toby stumbles into success with his own reality TV show, that involves paying special service to his oversexed agent (Gina Gershon), while Les struggles alone with his sanity. There's enough retro modern social satire here to support the comical efforts of a talented cast adding layers of emotional nuance. Alison Lohman (White Oleander) remains a rising star with yet another inspired performance that surprises and charms.

Not Rated, 107 mins. (B-)
