Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer
Edgar G. Ulmer was one of the very few filmmakers who was able to carve out a distinctive and memorable style while working in the lowest depths of Hollywood's Poverty Row, and he rarely wrung more from less than in Detour, a darkly fascinating little film that proves the right director could make something powerful and expressive even out of the most shoddy materials available.
