AuteurTheory’s review published on Letterboxd:
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.
