"It's his most-un-Scorsese-like film, and it's an overlooked gem."

— Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

"The result is a delirious and challenging comedy, a postmodern Ulysses in Nighttown."

— Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine

"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."

— Julie Salamon, Wall Street Journal

"After Hours is dazzling movie-making; you could get a giddy kick just from cinematographer Michael Ballhaus' shot as a set of house keys floats down toward the camera, tossed from a top-floor apartment."

— Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times
