After Hours








Director - Martin Scorsese

Genre - Comedy/Thriller


A hapless average Joe has to endure the longest night of his life in an area of town with the most unusual of characters. The onslaught of misfortunes heaped upon him endlessly are the highlights in this pitch-dark comedy. If you're having a bad day, this is just the remedy for you. What could be better than watching some poor soul have a far worse off time? It's like the new voyeuristic sport of monitoring Britney's life. Try as you will, you just can't bring yourself to look away.

4 STARS!

This is one of my favorite Scorsese pictures. It's such a loving tribute to New York at night, and such a fun rollercoaster ride through the city's underbelly and shadowy corners.

Yes this is definitely one of Scorsese's most underrated films. Actually, I'd say it IS his most underrated film. It's funny, and has a great tension built through out. And where he ends up at the end of the film is perfect. Good choice!
