Quotes

Tori: I mean I love Paulie, you know that I do. She's my best friend in the world and probably the only person that I will ever love like, like in the way that... Cleopatra
[crying]
Tori: . And to hurt her, its like I'm choking, like I'm not in the breathing world. But there's this life that I am supposed to live, this dream that my mother and father had for me and even though it is killing me Mary, I can't ever be with Paulie ever, not ever, ever again.

About the film "Lost & Delirious"
14 January 2002 | by (Muncie, IN) – See all my reviews

There are few words to describe a movie such as "Lost and Delirious." The most conspicuous being "beautiful." No matter what your views may be on homosexuality, there isn't a person out there who can truly say that they did not feel the tremendous pain that Paulie felt when Tori walked out of her life. Every camera angle, tape speed, background, audio effects...everything...in this movie is absolutely perfect. I've never seen anything like it. The only other picture I can remember of this same artistic caliber would be John Duigan's 1998 film "Lawn Dogs." However, even it does not leave you with the emotional sting that "Lost and Delirious" does. The bottom line is, do NOT rule out this film because of the basis of it's storyline. It is not all about the sexual relations & lesbian activity. It is very much a deep look into the human spirit.
