This film, for me, is great film making. It stands completely on its brilliant, original story plus great acting from all. There are no "formula" additives of big star, big budget, over-the-top story, or any other Hollywood chemicals to artificially sweeten the product.

It is a night in the life of an ordinary hum-drum office worker that becomes a surreal rollercoaster ride of mishaps and coincidences, after reading a book on his own in a cafe leads to him meeting a charming but mysterious strange woman. The night slowly turns into a neverending nightmare - funny, as long as these acts of fate arent happenning to you!

I found this film a hoot, really watchable and recommend to anyone looking for some lighthearted fun.

I'm so happy to be able to buy it from Amazon!!! I saw this film ages ago and I've been looking for it everywhere since. There's not much to say, although I do agree that if you don't like Scosese, or these surrealistic films where the ambiance is more important than the plot, then you might find yourself slightly clueless at the end.

Every now and then, one of the brain-dead masses really would leave their revolting 80s lives above the earth (we lurked beneath) to walk among us.
Like the glorious nether-world characters here, our interests were occasionally and briefly piqued by the astonishing vapidity of every ounce of such an intruder's being but I have to say we would never have spoiled them to the degree illustrated in this story.

During a moment-of-pause, Griffin Dunne's lead character dances to Peggy Lee's "Is That All There Is?" and the intent I'm sure was to provide character and audience with some relief from all the devilish mischief befalling him. The scene works on that level but also, for one moment, his face shows a glimmer of recognition of the awfulness of the real-world reality he's so desperately attempting to return to.

Would we unclean 80s refuseniks have allowed such a character to have made it so far? Oh, okay, we'd have been much nicer really... though he would have been stripped, forced to burn his excremental shoulder-padded cloth and delivered naked back to Manhatten by the second reel. One never left the 80s by persuasion.

As he's prone to, when not glorifying the tedious dementias of Italian-American gangsters and boxers, Scorsese shines.

So glad to see that many others have enjoyed this dark, surreal Scorcese masterpiece. Every turn our hero takes leads him to yet another dilemma.A truly fun and fantastic film from start to finish with all round superb performances from a fine cast.
