Director: Martin Scorsese

Scorsese's most fun and crazy film, 90 minutes of a descent into madness and paranoia and complete lack of sleep. It's directed with immense style and really effective camerawork and editing, and Griffin Dunne's performance as he meets a variety of weird women in his quest to get back home is terrific and highly likable. One that I could see becoming a personal favorite over time, the type of stylish dark comedy that I love watching.
