Lost and Delirious (2001)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Lost and Delirious becomes exactly that, as the film sinks into overwrought melodrama and cliched, obvious symbolism.

Their characters may feel lost, but Ms. Perabo and Ms. Paré rank among the finds of the year.

Barely skirting the lip of the ridiculous.

Pool and Thompson have turned a tough-minded, solid narrative into a campy piece of kitsch that panders to teenage angst.

Evokes the intimacies of teenage girls with unusual delicacy, and Perabo's performance is a geyser of emotion.

Audience Reviews for Lost and Delirious

½

It is really interesting to see how Pool makes this Shakespearean story of unrequited love and obsession look like it could be taking place in any time, and it is also very nice the way that she gradually moves her focus from Barton's character to that who is its true protagonist, Paulie (Perabo).

I saw this on television years ago and have seen it a couple more times after that. It has some how stayed with me as I thought it wasn't your typical teen movie, it was much more dark and dramatic. The acting by the young girls were pretty good. There's also girl on girl action in here if you're into that.
