A sweet, incredible story
23 October 2009 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I saw delirious on Showtime the other night; and, I really liked it. It was really late at night; but, I love Steve Buscemi as an actor; and, had to see it, as he got top billing! Steve Buscemi was great in Reservoir Dogs, Fargo, Trees Lounge, The Saprano's; and, even G-force. I really have to give him credit on this one too. He is absolutely passionate within the role of a semi-successful Paparazzi, who takes unstaged photographs of the famous, or nearly famous.

His character, Les, is not the most admirable or likable person. In fact, he is often self-absorbed, spouting off his philosophical beliefs to his assistant, Toby (played incredibly by Michael Pitt). However, it's Les' quirks that have the greatest impact on Toby, when he obtains some form of stardom, as he often quotes Les in terms of his feelings and beliefs. Alison Lohman plays K'Harma, and does a great job.

The twist at the end, which is heightened by the tension between Les and Toby was great. This movie could have been a tragedy; but, it ended up being a sweet, incredible story about relationships and romance.
