After Hours

After Hours ★★★★★

What an utterly brilliant and crazy piece of filmmaking. It never lets up, never gives Dunne a break. And he throws everything he's got at it. A phenomenal performance.

Scorsese once again uses the camera for all it's worth. It's frantic, original and all over the place. And the way he works it with the music. Holy damn, what a score.

The basement scene was so genius that I haven't quite taken it in entirely yet. I almost wish they had gone all the way, but perhaps the film is better for not doing so. It really does come full circle in the end.
