One of the most daring and thoroughly perverse works of art ever to come out of Hollywood. Full Review
The film, told in flashbacks, is held together by a poetically lurid interior monologue and directed, by Edgar G. Ulmer, with harrowingly expressive effects of light and shadow. Full Review
Detour is about as threadbare as they come: a small film, shot on a shoestring over a handful of days at a Poverty Row film studio. And yet, the finished product is uniquely compelling. Full Review
Film Freak Central
Rating: 3.5/4 -- one of the darkest and most fatalistic of the postwar film noir-to the point that, if it didn't work so well, it could be mistaken for a postmodern parody of the genre Full Review
Q Network Film Desk
Rating: 4/4 -- It lives on, haunting and creepy, an embodiment of the guilty soul of film noir. No one who has seen it has easily forgotten it. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- The world of Detour provides a sharp contrast with the cheerful domesticity and rah-rah jingoism of many Hollywood films of the period ... Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Ulmer brings an enormous amount of impressionistic creativity and (what are now considered) infamous noir tropes into the project without spending more money. Full Review
