Their characters may feel lost, but Ms. Perabo and Ms. Paré rank among the finds of the year.
July 27, 2001
Barely skirting the lip of the ridiculous.
July 27, 2001
Pool and Thompson have turned a tough-minded, solid narrative into a campy piece of kitsch that panders to teenage angst.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 23, 2001
Evokes the intimacies of teenage girls with unusual delicacy, and Perabo's performance is a geyser of emotion.

Equally earnest and unconvincing.

July 20, 2001
Its treatment of the operatic highs and lows of young love and heartbreak feels right emotionally, even though the film tells its story rather awkwardly.
July 20, 2001
Pool is an assured director, not afraid to explore the darker side of adolescence with integrity.
July 19, 2001
Isn't it possible to be true to one's heart without self-destructing?

July 13, 2001
Stirred within me memories of that season in adolescence when the heart leaps up in passionate idealism -- and inevitably mingles it with sexual desire.

July 12, 2001
Weighty stuff for the Bring It On or Legally Blonde summer crowd. For the rest, Lost and Delirious is a welcome antidote.
July 6, 2001
Pool can't avoid force-feeding us metaphors -- avian to Shakespearean -- whenever she wants.
July 6, 2001
Pool captures the crazed urgency of first love -- the feeling of a passion so fierce that even a disapproving society can't crush it.

It's a good, slick film, if less interesting then Pool's earlier, more personal French-language efforts.
July 6, 2001
[Pool is] working with a bigger budget, glossier production values and a much dumber script ... than usual.

The film's title refers to its heroine but ends up describing the movie itself.

July 5, 2001
It often has a camp ludicrousness, evoking an 'Afterschool Special' inspired by the pages of Penthouse Forum.

July 5, 2001
Much of the time Pool seems lost herself, resorting to clichés, redundancy, and dead-end allegory.
July 5, 2001
The people who made this movie apparently aren't satisfied just to let you see something when they can talk about it too.
July 3, 2001
Cumulatively excruciating in its mawkish symbolism ... quasifeminist posturing (men bad!), and strenuous heterophobia.
April 26, 2001
A thoughtful and compassionate story of a young girl.
