A great tech time capsule from not too long ago, when PCs were rooted to the desktop and you needed change to place a phone call on a busy street corner.

After Hours is a surrealistic nightmare, a new wave burlesque with a mainstream slickness.

The cruelest of comedies, 'After Hours' makes me laugh so hard I can barely breathe. Not everybody has that reaction, though.

He never really seems to be in mortal danger so much as mocked and harassed for being so deeply out of place. For many men, however, being made to feel small is a fate worse than death.

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.

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.

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.

As absurdist angst-ridden comedy, "After Hours" isn't flawless. As Martin Scorsese's way of using art to cathartically shake off bugaboos, exorcise demons and bounce back stronger after major dream-project setbacks, it's its own sort of masterpiece.

The more bizarre and frantic the material, the more I felt the strength and sureness of Scorsese's directorial hand, taming the screenplay's goblins and rendering them harmless.

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.

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.

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 weird, wonderful and wildly funny.

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.

...never quite generates the comic flow its story needs.

This is one of Scorsese's best, and one of my favorites of his.

[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.
January 25, 2010
The result is a delirious and challenging comedy, a postmodern Ulysses in Nighttown.

Martin Scorsese's take on NYC puts a hip spin on Joe Minion's cleverly constructed nightmare.
