The most intense movie I've ever seen (by cellolove13)
The concept for this film is unique. I'm surprised this hasn't been done before. The film is very suspenseful. I found myself holding my breath for minutes at a time. There is a twist at the ending and it feels a bit unresolved. I'm surprised this film hasn't gotten more buzz.
Top quality modern film noir made all the better by the unknown solid actors (by carbuff)
If you enjoy film noir, I really can't recommend enough that you give "Detour" a shot. It's quite original, and there's no way any honest person could say they saw this whole thing coming. The cinematography is really sharp and it falls into place piece by piece right up until the very end at which point the whole puzzle makes sense. I'm not going to say anymore, because I don't want to spoil anything. It's short, so if this is your kind of thing, give it a shot. It will all come together perfectly at the end.
Nice thriller suspense (by cekadah)
Finely acted, nicely written little film. Each actor shines in their role and I bet once you start watching you won't be able to stop.Part of the charm of this film is how the director unfolds the story with smart editing. At first I thought it was going to be 2 parallel stories as the conversation in the strip joint suggest.One person 2 decisions and their respective paths each being shown. Then it comes together with the scene involving the policeman. It's one story! Check this one out for sure! Enjoy!
Wow! (by Reznik_T)
I was totally caught off guard by this movie, as I had heard nothing about it before, until I saw it today on HBO, and it turned out to be pretty d*mn good!Detour is a small road trip thriller about a teenage boy who suspects that his stepfather did something bad to his Mom, and as he tries to figure out what to do about it, he makes some stupid decisions which get him into trouble. As the events of the film unfold we start to realize that the mess he made is even worse than we thought, and there are some crazy and unexpected twists and turns along the way.I missed the first 5 minutes of the <more>
movie, but it was easy to pick up, and due to the acting, the realistic dialogue, the tension and the amazing camera-work I was hooked from the moment I started watching to the very end. The performances are top notch; both Tye Sheridan and Emory Cohen - who I had never heard about before - are fantastic, as well as the girl, Bel Powley. The story is exciting, and is told in a clever even if not entirely original way. There are several instances when the movie goes to unexpected places, and through the unfolding events more and more information gets revealed about the characters, which makes Detour an especially interesting and fun ride. I guess, at this point, Christopher Smith has got to be one of my favourite directors, as he also directed the 2009 movie "Triangle", which is a similarly unrecognized, underrated thriller, and is a personal favourite of mine.
Skilfully written, energetically performed and full of delicious twists, "Detour" 2016 is a highly enjoyable crime thriller that intrigues by using an interesting structural device, entertains by keeping its action well-paced and displays its writer's affection for film noir by referencing movies that were clearly some of his greatest influences. The plot and its characters are consistent with those which were typically found in noir movies of the past and its fatalistic qualities are also consistent with the ethos of the style.Young, wealthy L.A. law student Harper Tye <more>
Sheridan is consumed with grief about his mother who's in a coma and fighting for her life and he's also full of anger and hatred for his stepfather, Vincent Stephen Moyer who he blames for his mother's predicament. He thinks that his stepfather is uncaring because he's failed to regularly visit his wife in hospital and furthermore, suspects that Vincent is having an affair with a Las Vegas cocktail waitress called Rosy Hills.One night, after visiting his mother in hospital, Harper drowns his sorrows at a nearby bar where he overhears a guy called Johnny Ray Emory Cohen talking about a scam that he and his girlfriend Cherry Bel Powley had been involved in during which she had lured unsuspecting men to a hotel room so that he could steal their cash. Unfortunately, when one of their victims had become violent and cut Cherry's face with a knife, she'd produced a gun and shot the man dead. Johnny and Harper get involved in some unpleasant exchanges when Johnny gets offended about Harper listening in to his conversation but later, as the two men talk and the inebriated Harper describes his issues with his stepfather; Johnny offers to take care of Vincent for a price $20,000 and Harper seemingly agrees.Next morning, the hung-over Harper is shocked and horrified when Johnny and Cherry turn up at the front door of his mansion all ready to go to Las Vegas to take care of Vincent. Harper tries to get out of going but Johnny isn't prepared to take no for an answer and it's at this point that the narrative splits into two parallel versions of what follows.In one plot-line, Harper accompanies Johnny and Cherry on a road trip to Vegas during which they get stopped by a state trooper who had seen them leave a diner without paying and visit a menacing drug dealer called Frank John Lynch who demands payment of an outstanding debt from the terrified Johnny. In the second plot-line, Harper simply stays at home and resolves his problems with Vincent in a different way. The way in which these two plot-lines eventually dovetail into each other is achieved by a neat time flip that enables the story to proceed to its surprising conclusion.One of the most interesting and enjoyable aspects of the movie is the way in which writer and director Christopher Smith openly acknowledges some of his influences. Examples of this are the way in which the original agreement between Harper and Johnny reflects a similar arrangement in Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" 1951 , a swimming pool scene at Harper's mansion which strongly evokes a memorable sequence in "Sunset Boulevard" 1950 and a situation involving the state trooper where, after Cherry turns the tables on him, anyone who's seen "Thelma & Louise" 1991 will immediately know where he's going to end up! Harper's name is taken from Paul Newman's 1966 movie of the same name as confirmed by a poster on Harper's bedroom wall and Dr Ulmer, at the hospital, gets his name from Edgar G Ulmer's ultra-gritty 1945 movie also called "Detour".Smith cleverly uses an excerpt from Al Roberts' narration from the 1945 movie in two contemporaneous scenes which feature Harper during his road trip and sitting in his home watching the movie on TV and also shows considerable flair in the way in which he uses split-screens. His characters are made real by great performances from Tye Sheridan as the intense main protagonist, Bel Powley as the damaged Cherry and Emory Cohen as Johnny Ray who, as well as being a volatile thug periodically makes philosophical statements by, for example, reportedly paraphrasing Confucius or remarking that "as you get older, you realize that life isn't about the choice you make, it's about the one you're given"."Detour" 2016 is so entertaining on so many levels that it's surprising that it hasn't been given the exposure it needs to achieve the commercial success that it deserves.
A film that plays with time in a fun way, with great direction by Christoper Smith, fantastic cinematography by Christopher Ross, and really believable acting by Tye Sheridan and the rest of the cast. I loved this film, but I thought it could have been better paced. The film sometimes slows down quite a bit, especially in the first half of the film. I feel that 4-5 minutes could have been cut. But that didn't really hurt the film to much, it was a great ride with a story that was really interestingly told. It's not a new way to tell a story but it's a fun take on the "Pulp <more>
fiction" time line story telling. So if you want a really fun ride with great filmmaking then watch Detour! So I'd say watch it and enjoy!
From Christopher Smith, the director of "Triangle" a movie that I personally love and that was loved by many, I thought i'd give this movie a chance without knowing much about what I was going into.And it was definitely a surprise, knowing that actually the budget of this film isn't high at all and won't hit the box office, I lowered my expectations but then what I got from the film raised them up.The film is actually very entertaining and engaging, and there's a very cool plot twist almost in the middle of the movie, I felt like this movie interacts with the viewers <more>
in a really cool way. What I liked the most about this film is that it feels unique, it shows you how simple decisions could change lives, and not to mention the cinematography was very beautiful.Without spoiling anything, I thought this movie was a very cool underrated thriller that deserves to be more known than this, so give it a try with an open mind.
Much better than expected!I was really not expecting much with no name actors I didn't recognize any one and no name director and writer Christopher Smith, but I was very pleasantly surprised!All the actors were spot on, maybe a little overboard in some instances but it played well with the directing which was actually very impressive for a director and writer I never heard of!Yes there were a few plot holes but for a 'B' or less movie, everything else was exceptional! Well done Christopher Smith and to the entire cast for a great thrill ride!
