One Night Stands
dir. Martin Scorsese, US, 1985, 35mm, 97 min.
The dull life of word processor Paul Hackett
(Griffin Dunne) is rudely interrupted when he sets out to find the intriguing
Marcy (Rosanna Arquette) in the dark and dangerous streets of downtown
Manhattan. The bizarre characters Paul encounters on the SoHo streets lead him
on a serious of misadventures that involves plaster casts of bagels, a punk
club where mohawks are enforced at the door and a vigilante mob lead by a
Mister Softee truck. After Hours is a
dark comedy of epic proportions with an all-star cast and a glimpse of New York
City from a bygone era.
