I dig stylized thrillers, and the film noir-ish, visually arresting Detour should have received way more attention when it was released this year. I’m giving away 1 (one) Blu-ray of Detour for this week’s Deepest Dream giveaway. Details below!!

The picture centers on a law student (Tye Sheridan) who, after a night of drinking, is cornered by two grifters (Emory Cohen, Bel Powley) after he supposedly asked them to kill his stepfather (True Blood’s Stephen Moyer). Director/writer Christopher Smith brings an unbridled visual confidence to the proceedings, and I really loved the film’s breakneck pace and gorgeous compositions (all three leads are solid in the film as well). Special features on the Blu-ray include interviews with Smith and Sheridan, a featurette, and the theatrical trailer.
