Cannes 1986 - Best Director: Martin Scorsese
Rating: 3.5/5 -- The film is riddled with cryptic mysteries, not to mention Cheech and Chong, and it plays as an urbane older brother to David Lynch's psychosexual masterpiece Blue Velvet. Full Review
The Sunday Age
Rating: 4/5 -- As absurdist angst-ridden comedy, "After Hours" isn't flawless. As Martin Scorsese's way of using art to cathartically shake off bugaboos, exorcise demons and bounce back stronger after major dream-project setbacks, it's its own sort of masterpiece. Full Review
The Film Yap
...Sweetly ominous....AFTER HOURS is dazzling movie making....The film is beautifully cast...
Los Angeles Times
...A must for serious-minded filmgoers....Uniformly vibrant and interesting [actors]...
Rating: 4/5 -- It's weird, wonderful and wildly funny. Full Review
It's not that they don't make comedies like After Hours anymore. The fact is there's never been a comedy quite like this one. Full Review
One of the best self-conscious black comedies to come along in a long time, Martin Scorsese`s After Hours is a film that delivers humor and anxiety like a smack in the face with an amphetamine pie. Full Review

A surrealistic black comedy that plays on the paranoia and dread of everyday life in the Big Apple, Martin Scorsese's AFTER HOURS captures what is easily the worst night of one man's life. Computer programmer Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) makes a casual date with Marcy (Rosanna Arquette), a woman he meets in a coffee shop, unaware that it's about to unleash a nightmarish odyssey through the bowels of lower Manhattan. Upon arriving at Marcy's spacious Soho loft, Paul meets her unnerving artist roommate, Kiki (Linda Fiorentino), and the night takes a turn for the worse. Sensing the bad vibes that lie ahead, he immediately decides to return to his home on the Upper East Side. Unfortunately, this isn't such an easy task. In a seemingly endless series of strange and dangerous encounters, Paul begins to fear that he might never make it home again. Working from a clever script by Joseph Minion, Scorsese's film is both hysterical and frightening in its depiction of an insane, neurotic New York City. As the unfortunate hero, Dunne delivers his lines with a baffled incredulousness that also works as a voice for the sympathetic audience, who doesn't know whether to laugh or cringe when things really begin to heat up.
Take an eventful one-night trip through the bizarre underworld of New York City as a regular guy (Griffin Dunne) is unwittingly thrust into a series of comic misadventures when he loses his cab fare late at night in Manhattan's Soho district. Joseph Minion's tightly constructed script, combined with Martin Scorsese's stylish direction, makes AFTER HOURS a highly entertaining ride that takes the "this night couldn't get any worse" concept to an entirely new level.
