5.0 out of 5 stars Watch this before you die October 13, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This film was one of the many things that my boyfriend and I found in common when we first met. When we first started dating we would go out into Soho and have 'After Hours' nights, although not quite to the surreal extent of this film, obviously! As unlikely, bizarre and downright WEIRD as the sequence of events in this film is, I find it completely inspirational. Our cities are full of strange characters and odd goings-on, but most of us walk around in little bubbles, oblivious (or blind) to it all. After watching this film, I opened my eyes a little wider.
Teri Garr is fantastic - nice but scary. Rosanna Arquette plays the role of her career. And New York itself is irrestistible - not the shiny slick metropolis that we are usually presented with, or the gangster-ridden crime land, but a human, vulnerable, strange and at times silly city full of secret compartments and surprises. A star! I want to watch this film at least once a year, for the rest of my life. It's a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes you wish scorsese would make more comedies April 9, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Uptown east side guy finds himself in an entirely new world, even though it's on the same island of Manhattan. This is not a new theme but I doubt if I've ever seen it carried out as far as Scorsese's AFTER HOURS. Griffin Dunne is perfect as the Everyman from a safe neighborhood who, on the hunt for a date (Roseanne Arquette in a very eerie role), finds himself in the artsy/clubby/s&m world of SOHO and the West Village.
The result is a hilarious black comedy with great performances, including a cameo by Cheech and Chong. Scorsese' pacing is breathtaking and right on the money. One of my favorite moments is when a large group of would-be vigilantes try to chase down Griffin Dunne, and their "armored vehicle" is an ice cream truck. There is too much going on here to describe in one review. Just give this one viewing, and you'll be glad you stayed up late to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dark Comedy Ever September 8, 2003
What a perfect movie. I can't believe they haven't released this on DVD yet. One of Scorsese's best movies, and that's saying a lot. Griffin Dunne is brilliant in this. So rich in detail and the cinematography is excellent. So many great shots... His only $20 flying out the window of the cab. The keys being thrown from the roof. And I LOVE the look on his face when he meets Horst. You can only see one wide eye over Horst's shoulder as Paul tries to assess his safety and the weird bondage scene he has just walked in on, while Horst makes him apologize for being rude. I've never seen so much expression out of just a quarter of someone's face. As I said, this is a perfect movie from start to finish. Every minute of it. I loved this movie so much when I first saw it, that my first fake ID in high school carried the name Paul Hackett. Hehe. Plus, it's hard not to identify with Paul for a lot of us. He doesn't lead the most exciting existence, and ALL HE WANTS TO DO is meet up with this beautiful woman that seems interested in him (to his amazement), only to have her turn out to be a total freak (and worse) and have EVERYTHING go wrong. He is SO out of his element the entire movie. So funny and surreal. A true masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky Comedy From Scorsese August 25, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After tackling heavy topics in his previous films, Scorsese made a departure from form and directed a comedy. But even for Scorsese, a comedy entails a word processor's date with a nice girl turning into an infinitely Kafka-esque nightmare where one bad episode follows another. I recall seeing "After Hours" at the time and considered it to be unlike any film I'd ever seen. It still holds up well. The only films akin to the work Scorsese has done here may be the work of the Coen brothers. Griffin Dunne is great as the harried lead and he is complemented with a great supporting cast. A minor criticism of the film is that the indignities heaped on Dunne may be a little overdone at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars After Hours October 4, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In the mid 80's Scorsese was in a dark place. Filming of The King of Comedy turned into a marathon, and he was starting to lose the joy of making films he knew from his days as a student filmmaker. Couple that with the fact that his passion project, The Last Temptation of Christ, was imploding under the weight of budget and time constraints until it was finally cancelled. Scorsese fell into depression and began pondering the possible end to his career, while searching for a project to re-find his love of crafting film.

In After Hours he found a project that he felt he could channel his depression into, and could possibly serve to help restore his former joy of filmmaking. After Hours was being developed as a Tim Burton vehicle at the time (he was hired based on the strength of his short film Vincent). After hearing that the script was initially sent to Scorsese, and that he was now interested in directing, Burton respectfully declined the director's chair not wanting to get in the way of Scorsese. Going into the film, Scorsese felt that if he could not finish this film properly he would never make another film again.

Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) is nothing more than an average word processor. One night after work he runs into a woman named Marcy (Rosanna Arquette) who invites him to her friend's place in Soho for a date. After spending some time with her, though, he realizes that she's a bit more than he can take so he makes a run for it when she's in the room. Unfortunately (or fortunately for us) he finds himself on the streets of Soho with no money and things quickly spiral further out of control as he contends with eccentric locals, mobs mistaking him for a burglar, and a suicide he may have caused.
