A nighttime odyssey through the mean streets of Manhattan, After Hours is a true gem among Scorsese’s 1980s filmography. Buttoned-up data entry worker Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) spirals into a surreal web of misadventure after he meets the mysterious Marcy Franklin (Rosanna Arquette) in a cafe one night. In his madcap quest to track down the elusive blonde, Paul ducks and weaves through dark encounters with free-wheeling taxi drivers, a sculptor named Kiki, a pair of thieves (Cheech and Chong), angry mobs and punk rockers where nothing and nobody seems to make any sense. After all, different rules apply when it gets this late.
Why You Should See This Film
Scorsese won Best Director at Cannes for After Hours, which many critics and filmmakers consider among the director’s all-time greats. Named by the Safdies as one of the key inspirations for Good Time, this is one utterly unforgettable, paranoia-soaked NYC trip we highly recommend taking.
