Detour: Deviazione per l'inferno


Diretto da Edgar G. Ulmer
Stati Uniti, 1945
Crime, Drammatico, Noir


As he hitchhikes his way from New York to Los Angeles, a down-on-his-luck nightclub pianist finds himself with a dead body on his hands and nowhere to run—a waking nightmare that goes from bad to worse when he picks up the snarling, monstrously conniving drifter Vera, a vicious femme fatale.

Detour: Deviazione per l'inferno Diretto da Edgar G. Ulmer
Glauber Rocha has nothing on Edgar G. Ulmer’s aesthetics of hunger. . . . Ulmer’s threadbare bondage-noir masterpiece grinds Double Indemnity into powdered milk, moving from one magnificently decomposing shot to another until its circular roadside desert becomes the stuff of nightmares.

Detour is the masterpiece of this type of film. More shots cut into 15 pieces, 283 cuts in 69 minutes, or 47 cuts a day, doubtless derived from 25 filmed shots. This film, conceived to the PRC rule, has amazingly survived the oblivion for which it was designed. So we have a cult-film released in France forty-eight years after its making – that’s a record – which captivates all true filmmakers: a model of rigour, a Greek tragedy that transcends its banal material.

What can you say about a 69-minute grade-Z production from 1945 starring a catatonic unknown (Tom Neal) and the most metaphysically distressing actress ever to grace an American film (Ann Savage) that takes place mainly in front of a rear projection screen . . . —except that it’s one of the most daring and thoroughly perverse works of art ever to come out of Hollywood?
