Neither narrative is particularly compelling, but the road trip one has an edge, because travel's always fun.
Even with three of the big screen's most dynamic up-and-comers at its center, there's no flesh and blood beneath all the posturing.
All the artfully composed shots, hinky situations and extra conceptual surprises can't make this "Detour" all that compelling beyond its crisp artifice.
Detour is just film-school-ish synthesis, right down to the cinematography-midterm shot lit through venetian blinds and the anachronistic analog static on the motel room TV ...
This surprisingly satisfying neo-noir thriller borrows a few pages from "Sliding Doors."
Detour is not quite great, but it is one crazy mile along the road.
Two lives collide with devastating results in German filmmaker Nina Vukovic's impressive debut feature.
A loving attempt to tackle a familiar genre, the film does everything it can to speed into new territory. Alas, it gets lost along the way.
The satisfaction in Detour ultimately comes not from the drama drawn from these conflicting personalities, but a finale that knits together the plots. None of the twists are truly surprising, but they're engineered with solid craftsmanship.
Goes down like sweet syrup. There's no reason to see this one in lieu of [U-Turn, Memento, The Last Seduction etc] but if you've seen those, you'll probably get on just fine with this. Like its characters, it puts on no airs or graces: it is what it is.
Even with all the nods and winks, the derivations and homages, Detour is good dirty fun.
With its Sliding Doors premise, this superb little thriller is as entertaining as it is unexpected.
