Lost and Delirious (2001)



Critic Consensus: Lost and Delirious becomes exactly that, as the film sinks into overwrought melodrama and cliched, obvious symbolism.

Critic Reviews for Lost and Delirious

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (23)

Noteworthy tale of a teenager in an all-girl's school who goes crazy when her roommate decides to stop being her lesbian lover.

June 28, 2014 | Full Review…

Their characters may feel lost, but Ms. Perabo and Ms. Paré rank among the finds of the year.

August 23, 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.

July 27, 2001 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Evokes the intimacies of teenage girls with unusual delicacy, and Perabo's performance is a geyser of emotion.

July 23, 2001 | Rating: B

Equally earnest and unconvincing.

July 20, 2001 | Rating: 1.5/5

Audience Reviews for Lost and Delirious


It is really interesting to see how Pool makes this Shakespearean story of unrequited love and obsession look like it could be taking place in any time, and it is also very nice the way that she gradually moves her main focus from Barton's character to the film's true protagonist, Paulie.

I saw this on television years ago and have seen it a couple more times after that. It has some how stayed with me as I thought it wasn't your typical teen movie, it was much more dark and dramatic. The acting by the young girls were pretty good. There's also girl on girl action in here if you're into that.
