After Hours

After Hours

A FILM BY: Martin Scorsese
WRITTEN BY: Joseph Minion
STARRING: Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Verna Bloom, Teri Garr, Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong

Griffin Dunne’s word processor (quaint!) visits Rosanna Arquette’s Henry Miller-loving mystery woman in Soho and experiences the longest, most nightmarish night of his life in this Martin Scorsese black comedy. The movie is unlike anything else on this master filmmaker’s resume: a brisk (a mere 97 minutes), dark New York story that tapped into ‘80s yuppie/romance paranoia a year before Jonathan Demme’s SOMETHING WILD explored thematically similar ground. And how about that supporting cast: Verna Bloom, Linda Fiorentino, Teri Garr, Catherine O’Hara, John Heard and Cheech & Chong. AFTER HOURS fared better with critics than at the box office but now is regarded as a cult classic and is ready for its “Is It Still Funny?” close-up—in glorious 35MM.
