Top Martin Scorsese Movies, day 1 2nd pick
After Hours (1985)
What if you meet a girl on a weekday and she invites you to her apartment? Nothing can go wrong, right? In this dark comedy / thriller, Scorsese (a new yorker who makes movies about NY) explores the contrast between the everyday working man (or in this case, the 80s 'yuppie') and the after hour artsy culture. Being a professional IT guy myself, I sure can relate with some of the things portrayed in this movie. Meeting the wrong girl, feeling alienated and even threatened in similar environments. Doing research about this movie, I found an interesting quote from critic Julie Salamon published in Wall Street Journal in 1985 by the released of this film; "This unpredictable and hilarious paranoid fantasy is a contemporary, urban "Wizard of Oz", peopled by punk artists and Yuppie vigilantes instead of wicked witches and Munchkins." That's why I positioned this movie above some others beloved Scorsese movie, this is a metaphysical farce revolving around situations that could've happened to us looking for an adventure. At the end of it all, we are back in our cubicles, reality sets in and that mysterious blonde we met at the coffee shop is not in with us in the office. .
