After Hours

After Hours ★★★★

The mother of all miscommunications.

Scorcese shows a side of his we rarely see, in this underrated gem. Non-stop laughs, and constant twists and turns. It’s ok if the main character wasn’t the most like-able, and it’s ok if he didn’t always choose the smart answers. The constant barrage of new characters and places mixed with old characters and places all
leading up to its hilarious ending packs a lot of interesting viewpoints, and makes a lot of statements about life in the 1980s.

From sexuality, to office jobs, to religion, to men vs women (how they’re supposed to act and their place in the world), it is like if Eyes Wide Shut and Taxi Driver had an affair with a comedy from out of left field, and Scorsese still found a way to pull it all off.

Let’s of great actors and actresses playing a wide array of roles, including Martin himself in a trademark cameo. 

I can’t believe it took me so long to see this movie. My girlfriend is gonna appreciate it after all the arthouse films I’ve put her through.
