This is one of Martin Scorsese's underrated and underappreciated movies, about Paul, a quiet computer programmer who goes out on a date with a girl he meets in a coffee shop, only for the date to turn into an endless night of lunacy. As he is forced to wander the streets, Paul witnesses the different lives of the residents of New York - a bizarre artist, a neuroic Monkees fan, a couple of thieves, and an irritating ice cream-van owner being a handful of the characters. He is an outsider peering in, much like when he sees a couple making love through a window, and witnesses a murder through another. Paul becomes strangled by the city - everywhere he turns he runs into trouble.
The script is piled up with quirky confrontations, conversations, and bizarre events. The script works well, with all the events interconnecting perfectly. It is also very witty, with numerous lines of dialogue resulting in a smirk, or laughter. Martin Scorsese's direction is brilliant - he sets up the suffocating tension, the comedy, and craziness with perfect stride. This is one of his - or perhaps his - most surreal movies; the first thirty minutes leaving the viewer unsure, yet in perfectly good hands. We're watching a man trapped, a man stuck in a city with a pulse - much like Travis Bickle in 'Taxi Driver'. With it's lesser known status, this will prove to be more of a gem than a classic - as it's a pleasently surprising movie, compelling and highly watchable.

One of Scorsese's smaller films and amongst his best. I saw this as a young teen, way before I even new who Martin Scorsese was and I loved every minute! I have seen it many times since and own the region 1 dvd, which has some good special features. A great New York movie and I doubt anyone else could've got such a good cast together.

Sandwiched between DeNiro's 'King Of Comedy' and the Newman/Cruise 'Color Of Money', this somewhat overlooked and criminally underrated 1985 Martin Scorsese directed offbeat screwball comedy is a pure gem of a little movie, showing a weirder side of New York than we are usually accustomed to seeing.

Travelling downtown for a vaguely arranged date, a quiet computer programmer loses his taxi fare. This proves to be the first of the night's many increasingly bizarre situations, as our hapless hero strives desperately to get home (alive), coming across more and more neurotic and unhinged New Yorkers over the course of the ultimate bad night out on the town.

Scorsese directs with the polished style that we expect to see in all his films.
The script is tight and witty and the performances are exceptional throughout.

This is an inventive and deliciously dark little comedy from the world's greatest director.

After Hours: When anything can happen... and usually does.

This DVD also contains the following special features:

- Commentary by;
Director Martin Scorsese,
Lead Actor Griffin Dunne,
Producer Amy Robinson,
Editor Thelma Schoonmaker,
and Cinematographer Michael Ballham.

- Featurette;
Filming For Your Life - Making After Hours

- Deleted Scenes

- Theatrical Trailer

A must see film if you're a fan of Scorsese films and haven't yet seen the full works of this director, who's more famous films include 'Mean Streets', 'Taxi Driver', 'Raging Bull', 'Goodfellas', 'Casino', 'Gangs Of New York', 'The Aviator' and 'The Departed'.

A quick look at my watch tells me it's getting late... I'm off out... Downtown!!!!

Right after the high budget debacle of the wonderfully ridiculous The King of Comedy, and the mainstream comeback of the overrated The Color Of Money, Scorsese directed his little underrated gem of movie. Set in the mid 80s, After Hours is about an IT expert who meets supposedly meets the most interesting and most beautiful woman he can ever hope to meet. Getting her phone number, he doesn't think twice about calling her up and setting up a date. Getting a taxi ride to the girls appartment, his last twenty dollar bill gets blown away by the speeding taxi and that's when his night of amore becomes a night of living hell.

What should have been Tim Burton's feature film directorial debut, After Hours is Scorsese going back to his roots via a modernised, fresh and comedic route. Taking a break from the norm, Scorsese directs one of the most bleakest comedies of the 1980s and what, on the surface, looks like a typical mid 80s anti-yuppie comedy film becomes a night time odyssey of cynicism that is backed up by a superb ensemble cast and a witty script that is very scarce these days. However what I find the film certainly delivering is energy, the film is an energetic collage of edited images that never let up, and clocking in at just 97 minutes long, the film starts off with a camera panning quickly to focus on our protagonist. Also not to be missed are the homages to other directors, in this case After Hours has subtle homages from Alfred Hitchcock to Roman Polanski (blondes creating trouble, misuderstanding etc., to the rondo narrative format that Polanski is a fan of and is effectivly used in this film)

Raging Bull was released in December 1980, and no Scorsese film after can match the brilliance and power of his magnum opus.
