Critic Reviews for After Hours
It might not make any sense. It might not even matter. But it's a blast while it lasts, and it brings the most perfect of endings along with the sunrise.April 9, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
That "After Hours" fails to satisfy, that it derails, that even its own director tires of the material halfway through, would disappoint no one if the name of Martin Scorsese didn't appear above the title.January 2, 2018 | Full Review…
After Hours is dazzling movie making; you could get a giddy kick just from cinematographer Michael Ballhaus' shot as a set of house keys floats down toward the camera, tossed from a top-floor apartment.
Like many of Scorsese's earlier pictures, After Hours has a fascination with the bizarre. But the new film is lighter in spirit than any Scorsese film, with the possible exception of Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
It's not that they don't make comedies like After Hours anymore. The fact is there's never been a comedy quite like this one.
It's his most-un-Scorsese-like film, and it's an overlooked gem.
Audience Reviews for After Hours
Jul 29, 2012I know it is considered something of an outlier in Scorsese's oeuvre, but I've always found its depiction of New York as pure undefinable madness completely in sync with the likes of "Taxi Driver" and "The King of Comedy". Dunne's performance is probably the film's most underrated element as I don't think many other actors could really capture the character's pathetic desperation.Alec B Super Reviewer
Feb 17, 2012Weird, dark, full of energy, Scorsese unlike what we're used to see him do. In other words, very interesting.Hugo S Super Reviewer
Dec 30, 2011Martin Scorsese's After Hours, it's a surreal and great black comedy, with a very good screenplay and actings. A film showing, that even in the most forgotten movie, Scorsese always is terrific.Lucas M Super Reviewer
Jul 20, 2011Unusual type of film for Mr Scorsese this one which he hasn't really been back to explore since which is a shame as this is one of those quirky interesting cult films that is pretty good, weird and bad all at once. Griffin Dunne is a great character actor and really shines here as a regular guy just trying to get home, although its his own fault he gets into all these sticky situations. A myriad of circumstances all rain down upon Dunne as he wanders from street to street in 80's New York (when NY was grotty too) which do leave you feeling quite uncomfortable or uneasy as he tries to solve problems and help people in order to gain trust or simply afew bucks to get the subway. Its brilliantly done by Scorsese as you really do feel for Dunne's character and find yourself talking to the screen as you get a hunch of the trouble that's coming his way, you just want him to get his keys back or finish one errend before he gets caught up in another hehe Great ensemble cast throughout with a perfect grimy almost spooky look and feel to it, not a perfect film gotta say, has its ups n downs, alittle dull in spots. I wonder why Dunne isn't in much else, he did this and 'American Werewolf' and that's about it really.Phil H Super Reviewer
