30 Day Film Challenge Day 11 - A Film by Your Favorite Director
After Hours (Martin Scorsese, 1985)
I figured I’d highlight this film over Scorsese’s more known gangster pictures and De Niro/DiCaprio pairings for the sake of unpredictability. Aside from GoodFellas, I find this to be his most flat-out entertaining work and easily his most off-beat as the scene above shows. There’s a kineticism and slickness to the film’s style that gels with all of the bizarre plot points and tonal shifts that occur. As far as unwilling protagonists go, Griffin Dunne’s Paul ranks right below Craig Wasson in Body Double which is no small feat.
Fuck yeah, watch this movie.
