"This is not a book. This is a prolonged insult. A gob of spit in the face of art."
A word processor meets a girl at a diner. They share common interest over a book he's reading. She invites him over. This is where After Hours stops being the movie you expected and transforms into a decent down the rabbit hole of NYC after midnight. Scorsese has always filmed his home state with passion and After Hours is no exception. Where Taxi Driver and Mean Streets both share a gritty but personal connection with the NYC, After Hours is the city on acid. This is a fine dark comedy. Proving to be both anxious and light-hearted. There's plenty to laugh at and even more to question. If you are a fan of Scorsese or dark comedies then this is a must watch.
