Slab Cinema: Detour

comment
Release Date: 2009-03-25

Detour is a film noir/B-movie masterpiece made quickly and crappily in 1945. The film has extremely shoddy production values but transcends these limitations, haunting audiences with its dark atmosphere. Film noir was one of the few pop-culture mediums in which nihilism was treated as an acceptable, mass artform. Or maybe the studios were too busy making widescreen epics to notice.
