Sam Powell’s review:
Martin Scorsese's impressive, yet unusual paranoia-filled comedy follows the absurd journey of Paul Hackett, (Griffin Dunne) whom attempts to make his way home after spontaneously meeting a girl in SoHo.
Stepping away from the crime/thriller genre that has earned the renowned director so much acclaim, Scorsese perfectly encapsulates the feel of a nightmarish lucid dream without forcing special effect laden surreal visions upon the audience. Instead the natural exhibition of the narrative makes the darkly humorous adventure all the more harrowing.
