The most original film I have ever seen
7 March 2001 | by alvoalvoSee all my reviews

The first time I saw Delusion was as a fluke ten years ago when it first came out. I saw it again today, and I am still shocked by how well it is written! The desert setting is very tangible and serves as a stark backdrop for the three central characters. Delusion is basically a Western molded into an early 90's thriller in a VERY creative way. It just keeps getting better and better, especially the closing scenes.
