    First time I've seen it since '85. Back then I thought it was the last word in cutting edge, dark, urban comedy, with an endless variety of quirky characters courtesy of screenwriter Joseph Minion...and what in god's name happened to him?... and fast paced but always controlled direction from Scorsese. Now, thirty two years on, I find the comedy just as wonderfully black (i.e. the scene where Terry Garr switches from The Monkees to Joni Mitchell 'cause she deems the later more appropriate as background when talking about someone who's OD'd) but the characters not as inventive in their eccentricity (i.e. all the women are wackos) and the pace a lot slower (particularly, as previous reviewer James Higgins noted, the first third) than I remembered. On the other hand, both Griffin Dunne in the lead as a yuppie naif in Boho/Soho Land and the classical/rock music by Howard Shore and a plethora of 50s/60s jukebox artists are better than I recall. And it sure is nice to see that part of NYC south of Houston captured on film just before The Gentry came to town. So let's give it a solid B. P.S. I miss the green screen computer.

    Martin Scorsese's earlier movies seemed to center around a misfit character who couldn't connect to others. You were never sure when he'd turn a corner and go completely off the rails. "After Hours" is completely the opposite. Here's an average guy who falls down a rabbit hole into an alternate universe of wackos. He's Dorothy in a demented Oz, and all he wants to do is go home. I also like the movie's time capsule look at SoHo before it became a high-end shopping mecca for tourists.

    Amusing comedy, great cast. Catherine O'Hara is particularly good. (But then again, she usually is!) Excellent cinematography. Starts out a bit slow but a third of the way through the pace picks up. Some very funny scenes, but it wasn't as good as I was expecting.
