Subject:Delirious
Posted by:chidder.
Time:11:04 am.
I've got this camera click, click, clickin' in my head.
—ELVIS COSTELLO,
"I'm Not Angry"

Although it doesn't appear until the end credits, Elvis Costello's classic 1977 spitfire anthem serves as one of the best movie theme songs—theme in every sense of the word—of recent years. Jealousy, voyeurism, paranoia, acceptance, rejection, denial, the potential for violence, the recognition that it's all so damn unfunny that it becomes funny—Costello's song has it all, and so does the fine film to which it's now been wed.

Director and writer Tom DiCillo's Delirious, which had a special screening last night in Manhattan at the Angelika, works effectively on so many different levels that it gives new meaning to the term cross-genre. At once a comedic and dramatic Midnight Cowboyish character study of downtrodden friendship, it's also a love story, a meditation on fame (those who have it vs. those who want it), and a potential stalker flick. Despite its vastly disparate characters, shifts in tone, and wildly divergent plot lines, the movie hangs together remarkably well. Its debts to Michael Powell's Peeping Tom and Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver aside, Delirious is the best movie about wanting to be famous since that other great Scorsese paean to obsessive behavior, 1983's The King of Comedy. (Both Scorsese films starred Robert De Niro, who receives mention several times in Delirious.)

"Sometimes I see too much," says Steve Buscemi's Les Gallantine (even his name is a worthy successor to Rupert Pupkin and Travis Bickle) to Michael Pitt's Toby Grace. What he doesn't see is how his chosen profession—that of paparazzi—with each click of his shutter takes something away from his subjects. He proudly displays on his apartment wall two long-range photos of Elvis Costello (who effectively appears as himself in the movie) as if they were big-game trophies.

Following last night's screening, Tom DiCillo spoke about the making of Delirious, which he spent the last six years bringing to fruition. He couldn't say enough good things about his star Steve Buscemi, who delivers what might well be the best performance of his career (right up there with his starring role in DiCillo's 1995 indie classic, Living in Oblivion).

One thing DiCillo couldn't stress enough about his new film and whether or not it succeeds: "Tell your friends about it." Indeed, in a movie marketplace where big-name films boast advertising budgets larger than what it cost DiCillo to make his movie (he had to reduce his budget from five million dollars down to three million), word of mouth is more important than ever.

DiCillo told The New York Times last week: "'Look at the movies people are watching.... They’re about nothing. You invest nothing.'"

Not so with Delirious.

So I'm all new and stuff. Hi everybody. *waves* I figured I should inform people that in the current issue of TV Guide (with House on the cover I think?) there is a SUPERCUTE picture of Steve with an ice cream cone in a story about The Sopranos. I could maybe scan it at some point if I can find a place to on campus (I'm leaving for school tomorrow).

for liking this man. I think we all agree he has a certain something though. Anxious for any new movies from him. I really liked trees lounge. Wish he would do another. I think I saw a sundance article though with a caption about him and a new movie. Something to look forward to in this world! He just, quite simply, fascinates me.

I work in the dental field and people cannot understand how I could find him attractive with teeth like his. He has great bicusids in my opinion!! Won't be making that known to any clients anytime soon....gotta keep business going. lol

I would have to say trees lounge is my favorite of all his movies.

For any UK fans, Steve will be in London on May 13th, performing alongside Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman in Theatre Of The New Ear. The show is for one night only, at the Royal Festival Hall. More infoCollapse ).

Tickets are now sold out, but there's a number you can call for returns. I managed to get hold of a pair on Ebay, so you might try there too. I for one will be staking out the stage door afterwards...
