As always, Buscemi masters his portrayal of needy desperation, but he still makes Les admirable for his capacity to go with the flow.

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.

Delirious, by writer-director Tom DiCillo, has a special quality because it does not make paparazzi a target but a subject.

...it depends so consistently on plot contrivances and other movies (The King of Comedy,Midnight Cowboy, even All About Eve) that it often comes across as wannabe muckraking.

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.

DiCillo gets at how celebrity culture can erode a person's dignity and self-worth, and Buscemi's performance strikes just the right note between unctuous bottom-feeder and loveable loser. It's unfortunate that the rest of the movie tends to get too glib.

Delirious, is among DiCillo's best, and returns to the central theme of his career: the elusive and destructive nature of fame.
August 15, 2007
In the end, I don't know that Delirious has all that much to say about the fame game, but you'll laugh nonetheless.

Tom DiCillo's Delirious is a mild Midnight Cowboy, a minor King of Comedy, and mainly a vehicle for Steve Buscemi as a lower Manhattan-based paparazzo.

The movie is exhilarating in a way that only hard-won knowledge of the world can be.
January 27, 2007
