After Hours

After Hours ★★★★

People don’t often talk about this rare Scorsese comedy. Maybe because no one knows who Griffin Dunne is. 

That taxi driver was scarier than Travis Bickle. 

EDIT: It isn’t really a comedy, so much as a darkly comic Dantean nightmare. 
There’s even a mini-recreation of Kafka’s “Before the Law”. After Hours does take a lot from Kafka and “The Trial”. It’s a surprisingly literary work.
