Delirious is different, genuine, alive, funny and as close to real life miracle as it gets! This movie is so deep (in a very entertaining way), you feel as if you just read a classical novel; instead of the silly flicks we all are so accustomed to see these days. Steve Buscemi's captivating performance, Michael Pitt's innocent yet noble attitude, Gina Gerswin, Allison and Callie's brilliant and lovable performances just drags you into the movie, where you feel a connection with most, if not all of the leads...
It is not a fast paced action movie, it will not make you sit on the edge of your seat throughout, but you will feel enriched when you leave. Tom Dicillo has outdone himself (and certainly many others)! We all need more movies like Delirious.
