DiCillo's themes are loyalty and friendship and betrayal and redemption.

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

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.

Tom DiCillo's Delirious, from his own screenplay, presents a paparazzo's worm's-eye view of the ridiculous world of celebrity culture.

Delirious, by writer-director Tom DiCillo, has a special quality because it does not make paparazzi a target but a subject.
August 31, 2007 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.
August 31, 2007
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.

It would be nice to see a sharp, funny, penetrating satire of the new, kicked-up culture of empty media fame, but Tom DiCillo's scattershot buddy movie Delirious isn't it.
August 20, 2007
There are some hilarious scenes here, and some moments so sad they'll make you wince.
August 17, 2007
Buscemi makes this pathetic and potentially lethal shutterbug a figure of surprising humor and compassion.
August 16, 2007
It's an achingly funny film that is also a little sad around the edges.
August 16, 2007
Too many different stories are vying for attention here, and none of them are very good.

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.
August 15, 2007
The prickly camaraderie between Buscemi and Pitt puts Delirious back on track, abetted by a hilarious turn by Gina Gershon.
August 15, 2007
Despite some plot holes, Delirious hits the bull's-eye with razor-sharp performances and dialogue.
