Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
Lea Pool's first English-language feature bears the mark of many Canadian features before it in its strange, at times haunting, examination of unrequited love. The film falters when it gets too earnest about both its characters and its metaphors, but as pungently scripted by Judith Thompson and helmed with clarity by director Pool, it genuinely feels unlike any other film recently made about teenage girls, never bringing its story down to the level of many sophomoric American comedies. Piper Perabo, miles away from her leading performance in Coyote Ugly, gives a striking portrayal of a scorned teenager, and her delirium reaches a perversely fascinating peak in her later scenes when her character's mental instability threatens to spiral out of control. The film shares the moody virtuosity of Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides, another movie that never sugarcoated its acidic tale of "lost girls" (a phrase utilized here as well), but however one looks at it, Lost and Delirious is unlike almost any movie out there, and that alone makes it distinctive and memorable. The feature premiered to enthusiastic response at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival.

    Good But Sad

    I love this movie! I could watch it three times a day. I found myself getting cought up in the emotions of the characters. It kept me on the edge of my seat to find out what was going to happen next. The only thing that was really sad and disapointing was the end. So, if you like happy endings then this movie is not for you but, if you need a good drama then this would be my pick.

    My God.

    Oh my god..Thats all I can say. I sat through the last half of the movie the first time i saw it, and just thaught- oh my god..i have to see the whole thing. After watching it, i even went out and bought it. Its depiction of love is so strong and so clear, that it just sucks you in. Its a beautiful movie and if you havnt saw it, id definitly reccomend it.

    brilliant

    My god this movie is sooooooooooooooooo brilliant. Yes its a lesbian movie, but its not cheesy or pornographic. Its written very well, and acted very well. You can feel for pauly and how she wants Tory to love her like they always had. Love, passion, delirium. I feel for you Pauly.

    One of the BEST!

    This is a great movie! The raw passion Paulie shows will give you a chill. Tory was an interesting character as well. Mary B too. The acting was incredible! Such a true love story. Unfortunatly I don't think it could have ended any other way. It just wouldn't have the same effect. Poor Paulie! See the movie, read the book too

    Amazing Film

    I did not believe that Piper Perabo could act after seeing Coyote Ugly, but this proved me wrong. She gives a raw, real, Oscar worthy performance in this very well made film. One of the few films to address homosexuality without alienating the characters.

    Raw and Beautiful

    This movie stirs emotions and feelings from everyone who has a heart. It hit close to home for me, but even through that, I couldn't stop watching. Piper Perabo's performance was so outstanding that I felt like I could feel everything she was feeling. Besides being a good movie, the music chosen for it is also beautiful.

    Haunting

    It always amazes me to see a movie that gets to the soul of what love really is!! It takes both excellent directing and acting to pull off a film with this much depth and controversy. You find yourself forgetting that these two young girls are in a ''taboo'' relationship, and focus more on how Paulie can win her ''true love.'' Don't you want to reach out and tell her to 'ignore' Tory? I have never felt so close to a character in a movie as I did Paulie. I had to watch it several times. Piper Perabo could or should have been nominated for an Oscar.

    Emotion Beauty and Freindship

    This movie really changed my view on lesbians being just a fetish in a mans life but it also showed the extremely oscar talented actress Piper Perabo as a tomboyish and emotional actress she now places in my best actress list and overall most naturaly gorgeous looking women by far

    Beautiful

    Lost and Delirious was an extremely beautiful film. It was a hauntingly realistic look on teenage problems and depression. Piper Perabo deserves something for her role in this film. I believe it was an Oscar caliber performance. It proved that Perabo could be a great actress.
