Movie Info

Harper (Tye Sheridan), a seemingly naive law student, obsesses over the idea that his shifty stepfather (Stephen Moyer) was involved in the devastating car crash that left his mother hospitalized and comatose. While drowning his suspicions in whiskey, he suddenly finds himself engrossed in a conversation with a volatile grifter (Emory Cohen) and his stripper companion (Bel Powley). As daylight breaks, Harper soon realizes that he's in over his head with this violent duo.

Critic Reviews for Detour

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (12)

  • Even with all the nods and winks, the derivations and homages, Detour is good dirty fun.

    June 23, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A watchable young cast, led by Brooklyn's Emory Cohen, and some time-shifting narrative shenanigans can't quite rescue Detour from the annals of also-ran western noir.

    May 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Sheridan, Cohen and Powley are a terrific trio in a stylish crime thriller that takes us on a trip through the seedy side of California and beyond.

    May 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • In Detour, Smith gives us a sprawling, petulant road trip movie, paying homage to the genre greats that came before it.

    May 23, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The characters are never Characters, Capital C for Characters, like they need to be for something this stylized to take

    July 6, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The film develops in a way that could have gone gimmicky but works here, something in great part due to the editing by Kristina Hetherington and cinematography by Christopher Ross.
