Movie Review (After Hours)

Martin Scorsese is one of my favorite directors, and I was excited to watch him direct a comedy, but of course he delivered making After Hours one of my favorite comedies. I’m a hard guy when it comes to comedy. I don’t mind a stupid and immature comedy, but I really don’t get a good laugh out of them. However, After Hours is mature and somewhat dark, but nonetheless colorful and hilarious. Every thing that happens to Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) is funny and nothing gets over used. The narrative is unique and is kind of all over the place but still ties everything together. Scorsese paces the movie well, and makes the movie clean to watch with the emphasis on the story of Paul. This movie gets a 4/5 from me and I recommend to anyone who enjoys a serious yet youthful comedy.
