Movie Summary

Director:

Released:
2006
Rating:
Not Available
Delirious is a 2006 comedy film about a celebrity photographer Les Galantine (Steve Buscemi) who befriends a homeless wannabe actor Toby (Michael Pitt). The movie was both written and directed by Tom DiCillo. Obnoxious and self-absorbed Galantine has major problems getting into the right celebrity events for exclusive photos. Galantine meets starry-eyed Toby and immediately takes him under his wing as an assistant. Toby meets famous pop singer K'Harma Leeds (Alison Lohman), which causes a rift in his relationship with Galantine. Toby develops real feelings for Leeds while Galantine's interest is purely self-serving. The rift in Toby and Galantine's relationship worsens once it is revealed that Toby is ready to get his acting career off the ground. He now faces a serious dilemma: living his own dreams or staying under Galantine's thumb out of obligation. The movie is entertaining and contains a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor. Actress Gina Gershon plays herself in a cameo appearance.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Tom DiCillo's angry comedy Delirious subjects modern celebrity culture to a microscopic examination that shows the toxic virus of fame squirming and multiplying under its lens.

    Variety Jonathan Holland

    An all-or-nothing perf from old DiCillo hand Steve Buscemi and a script that leaves no ironical stone unturned make this laugh-out-loud fare.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    A story peopled by flawed archetypes, it's an achingly funny film that is also a little sad around the edges.
