After Hours

After Hours ★★★★½

The sense of danger and anxiety is so rampant throughout the second half of this, but at the same time it’s a TON of fun. As far as NYC kafkaesque dark comedies featuring an “everyman” protagonist go, it doesn’t get much better than this. Seen a couple others but none that offer such consistent thrills and laughs, not to mention Scorsese’s dynamic visual style hitting its stride here. Beautiful looking film in its own way, really underrated joint, and it’s clear to see how this inspired some well known filmmakers down the line and even a film or two or three...or an entire subgenre.
