    After Hours

    ★★★★★

    I realised earlier this week that we're almost two months into 2018 and I haven't watched a single Scorsese movie so far this year, something that had to change with a movie I've been wanting to watch for a while, his 1985 cult classic After Hours, which takes place over a single night following the misadventures of an ordinary world processor named Paul Hackett played by Griffin Dunne.
