Scorsese gone Coens (naturally before them). Hilarious!

Scorsese channeling David Lynch. A fast-paced, wacky cinematic head trip.

Torgo is right, this feels a lot like a Coen movie. Reminds me of Inside Llewyn Davis. You're not sure if you should feel bad for the guy or not. All this terrible stuff is happening to him, but at the same time it's kind of his fault for lying to or being a jerk to everyone he meets.

Genuinely felt sorry for the character. Great movie, proves Scorsese could direct just about every genre.

Weird movie. But also captured what the village seemed like to me as a kid.

Scorsese's dark comedy After Hours has been called a "yuppie nightmare", which WAS a kind of subgenre in the 80s and early 90s there for a hot minute. Give or take The Game, this is probably the darkest of the lot, though not without its smirks. Griffin Dunne plays Paul, the kind of guy who would avoid keys thrown at him instead of catching them. He makes ONE unsafe decision on impulse and pays the price, proving he (we?) should always play it safe. In the span of one night, he meets a lot of experienced comic actors (among them Teri Garr, Cheech and Chong, and Catherine O'Hara), but his journey is one of constant emasculation, not only from the women who initially show an interest in him, but from things as innocuous as bathroom graffiti and mouse traps snapping shut near a bed. That image is pregnant. He's a rat in a maze - I feel like they should have made him a more active participant in the rat race instead of a "word processor" - tempted by cheese, but threatened with castration (if rats could conceive of such a thing), duelling primal instincts. And yet, though the themes are interesting, I'm not sure it really comes together. We're focused on him and miss out when other characters disappear from the narrative, and I'm not sure we know what he learned from the experience. Entertaining, but an uncompleted pass.
