REVIEW:

A surprisingly hilarious film about the relationship between a vagabond and a paparazzi as they develop a bond in-between taking sleazy photos of celebrities. The self proclaimed licensed photographer, in reality a paparazzi, Les (Buscemi) takes under his wind a young homeless man, Toby (Pitt) as his assistant. Together the dual make a formidable team landing several shots of well known celebrities and receiving decent payments.

Toby eventually makes his way into the circle of pop singer Kharma (Lohman) and Toby grows sympathetic towards celebrity scandals. His change in character causes a rift in the friendship with Les as the latter grows jealous. Itís well done blend of comedy and drama that makes a touching and quirky film about satirizes the dynamics of paparazzi/celebrity world without passing judgment.

Buscemi is fantastic as the delusional photographer hoping that his career as a paparazzi will lead to something bigger working for Nike or Calvin Klein. His parents are less than supportive about his life style deeming it a waste. After taking a popular photo of well known actor, Les proudly shows it to his parents only to be insulted and rejected. Les has no friends and the ones that speak to him he feels are only concerned with themselves rather than him. His apartment is small, trashy, and a reflection of a sad man living alone.

But Les finds friendship in Toby, who in many ways is similar to Les. Both have family troubles and are looking for someone to tell them everything is going to be okay, but no one ever does. Buscemi and Pitt provide some nice sincere moments that really gives you an understanding of how these characters operate.

The title Delirious derives from the delusions all three characters put themselves though. Toby aspires to be an actor but has no headshot or experience to back it up. Les aims to be a profession photographer working with respected companies but his job as a paparazzi is not providing quality pictures, and Kharma is experiencing love issues dating men who are more concerned about their image than her. DiCillo hits the right note with each character giving enough inside look into their personal lives without overwhelming the story with overly sentimental material.

The relationship among the characters is believable. When Les feels abandoned by Tobyís new found fame, he beings to fall into a depressed state deluding himself into thinking Toby was not such a good guy to begin with. He fails to accept responsibility for his actions leading to Tobyís departure. The chemistry between Lohman and Pitt is cute, coming off like a high school romance of two sweethearts.

Delirious is a funny satirical outlook skims the surface of the celebrity/paparazzi relationship but focuses mostly on the friendship between Les and Toby. The film is charming and dark, as the characters dive into the underbelly of the fame world particularly Toby who transforms into a different character on the outside, but is able maintain his innocence. DiCillo directs an excellent film with compelling characters and solid performances, thanks in large part to Buscemiís creepy Les, and the film provides a different outlook on the influence of fame on friendship.
