Anxiety-ridden picture would have been pretty funny if it didn't play like a confirmation of everyone's worst fears about contemporary urban life.

[Scorsese's] tendency toward hollow showboating has rarely been more in evidence ... Ends as a tolerable but annoyingly atonal exercise made by artists with little if anything on their minds.

One of the best self-conscious black comedies to come along in a long time, Martin Scorsese`s After Hours is a film that delivers humor and anxiety like a smack in the face with an amphetamine pie.

Scorsese's showmanship ends up enhancing the film's dreamlike, surrealist sense of encroaching hysteria.

This is the work of a master filmmaker who controls his effects so skillfully that I was drained by this film.

One of the most desperately uncomfortable and uncomfortably hilarious dark comedies ever conceived, After Hours is unlike any comedy you've ever seen - and one you won't soon forget.

The film is riddled with cryptic mysteries, not to mention Cheech and Chong, and it plays as an urbane older brother to David Lynch's psychosexual masterpiece Blue Velvet.

I love it for its unrelenting inventiveness, its constant motion and its curmudgeonly glass-half-empty outlook.
