Lost and Delirious Three girls share a secret cult of love and sexuality I am going to step out of my professional mode and tell you the real reason I bought Lost and Delirious... Ever since I saw Piper Perabo in The Adventures of Bullwinkle, I had a crush on this New Jersey actress. She is extraordinarily cute. So, when I heard that she was starring in a film playing a lesbian, and doing nude scenes, there was nothing more than I wanted than to own this DVD. I suppose other guys like myself had the same idea, because it took a long time for me to be able to get this disc. Most places were out of stock. Finally, 5 weeks after its release, the disc showed up at my doorstep. After watching this film last evening, I was totally amazed at what an incredible movie this is and how much it differed from my expectations. The story concerns a young girl named Mouse (Mischa Barton) who arrives at Perkins Girls College, leaving behind her father. She's a young, inexperienced girl who immediately gets befriended by her two senior roommates, Tori (Jessica Pare) and Paulie (Piper Perabo). One evening, Mouse awakens to find Tori and Paulie passionately kissing each other. Through time, Mouse learns that these two friends share a passionate sexual bond. When this bond is discovered by other classmates, Tori and Paulie are forced to drift apart as Mouse becomes intertwined in the struggle of the breakup. The first misconception I had about this film was that it was about two lesbians. In actuality, the film is about the love that bonds two souls. The film is essentially poetic, tastefully done, and beautifully filmed with the proper lighting and shadows. How does the transfer look? This is actually the first Lions Gate DVD that I have had the chance to watch and I did not know what to expect from this small company. The transfer is exceptional. Picture is very clean, colors are warm and precise. The DVD has a nice active Dolby Digital 5.1 mix with most of the music enveloping the rears. During outdoor scenes, you can clearly hear other students passing from the front to rear soundstage. It's a far better mix than I expected from a film like this. The DVD has no extras other than subtitles and original trailer. Final Thoughts Yeah, yeah, it was great to watch these beautiful young women. Each of them have beautiful bodies that the film doesn't hesitate to show off in its few nude sequences. However, once you get past that initial draw, you realize what a beautifully deep film this is. For anyone that had second thoughts about the acting ability of Piper Perabo, watch her performance in this film. It's worthy of an Oscar nomination. The film is just absolutely remarkable! Lost and Delirious is certainly one of those films that never went mainstream, but is better than most of the mainstream movies out there in the past year. It's one of those little gems that is a must rent -- but for under $19, is worthy of owning.
