Steve Buscemi plays a typically twitchy loser in Delirious, a satire about disposable fame by director Tom DiCillo, who also skewered celebrities in Living in Oblivion. The bug-eyed Buscemi stars as a N.Y.C. paparazzo who spends his days and nights chasing vapid pop stars and action heroes, hoping to land "the shot heard around the world." He takes in a homeless kid (played by Kurt Cobain doppelgänger Michael Pitt), who becomes his assistant. The protégé soon becomes immersed in celebrity culture, hooking up with a Britney Spears-type singer and hobnobbing with famous folks like Elvis Costello (who plays himself in a funny cameo). Stick around till the end of the closing credits for the film's funniest bit. Delirious screens at 9:40 tonight and at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Cleveland Cinematheque, 11141 East Boulevard. Admission is $8. Call 216-421-7450 or visit www.cia.edu for more information.
