Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt are easily the best odd couple the movies have seen since Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon.
January 23, 2009
Leaves us with the same old familiar and empty Hollywood storyline on the world of celebrity culture.

May 8, 2008
It's not as sharp as his indie gems from the mid-1990s, but the thing's packed with bright performances and unique characters, which is what DiCillo does best.

May 5, 2008
The film isn't as broadly funny as the previous DiCillo-Buscemi collaboration Living in Oblivion, but its outsiders peering in have an uncomfortable resonance.

December 13, 2007
DiCillo's themes are loyalty and friendship and betrayal and redemption.
December 3, 2007
DiCillo hasn't lost his gift for artfully skewering both those basking in fame's spotlight and those lurking in the shadows, while still finding a measure of affection for all of them.

November 1, 2007
For all its time-worn situations and observations, Delirious has a truth or two to impart about our lust for celebrities.

This satirical comedy is a connoisseur's delight, with Steve Buscemi in top form as the runt of a paparazzo who tries to exploit a homeless young man.
October 5, 2007
As always, Buscemi masters his portrayal of needy desperation, but he still makes Les admirable for his capacity to go with the flow.

DiCillo is ultimately grounded in the eccentric, awkward relationship

September 27, 2007
I just wish you'd get the chance to see it in a theater like I did, because if more people took the time to do so then maybe we might actually get more intelligently crafted relationship comedies like it.

September 14, 2007
With Delirious, writer-director Tom DiCillo has crafted a wonderfully giddy meditation on the nature of fame, the people who sell it and those doing the buying, and their mutually parasitic dependence on each other.

September 14, 2007
The jokes are sparse and predictable, and the storytelling is, too. But Buscemi and Gershon have great fun with their roles, and Pitt is strangely agreeable about the whole thing.

September 14, 2007
The movie is a provocative little pleasure, and the gleefully vile Buscemi and dreamy-eyed Pitt make a fine 21st-century odd couple.

September 13, 2007
DiCillo's spot-on writing -- and the exceptional performances by Buscemi and Pitt -- creates a touching and vivid friendship that stabilizes the film.

September 12, 2007
DiCillo finds comedy in the tragic, depth in the shallowness, and surprises in the cliché
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 7, 2007
A great romp with both Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt having the time of their lives. Especially fun to see Pitt do something completely different.
| Original Score: 8/10
September 5, 2007
Tom DiCillo's Delirious, from his own screenplay, presents a paparazzo's worm's-eye view of the ridiculous world of celebrity culture.
August 31, 2007
Delirious, by writer-director Tom DiCillo, has a special quality because it does not make paparazzi a target but a subject.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Someday, far in the future, a team of archeologists will dig up the black, wizened, still beating heart of New York City, and it will look exactly like Steve Buscemi.
