Subject: Intriguing film, but I didn't like the ending (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT).

I saw 'Lost & Delirious' on television once. I certainly found it to be a captivating film. However, I think the ending - where Paulie tops herself - kind of spoiled it. I say this because I think the film could have been a good examination of struggling to cope with grief and depression, and the fact that Paulie commits suicide means that she doesn't cope at all. Maybe the message here is that she should have gotten the help when she obviously needed it, but it's obviously not a good film for anyone struggling to cope with grief and depression.
The film does show extremely negative consequences of homophobic prejudice, or Tori's fear of homophobic prejudice, but I have seen the films 'Show Me Love' and 'But I'm A Cheerleader' and they also deal with that topic. They're also the only romance films that I've ever seen where I've actually felt moved by the sweetness of the stories. I'm a heterosexual male, but it wasn't voyeurism that made me watch or enjoy those films. I enjoyed them because they both tackled homophobia and also showed young people finding happiness in themselves and each other. With 'Lost & Delirious', that doesn't happen.
Anyway, that's my take. Feel free to expression agreement and/or disagreement.
