Really watched it in its entirety for the first time just the other night.

|Right! Scorcese? Didnotknowthat. Trivia question below:||128|
Nov 14, 2003 1:07 PM
|After Hours opens with a scene that pays homage to a great literary work (essay). The movie directly paraphrases the same literary work in the movie where our hero tries to enter a disco.|

|Franz Kafka "Before the Law"
The gates(I think they close in the first scene and open in the final scene) in the first scene represent the Law . (Kafka's use of the Law as metaphor for racism and those not admitted to social institutions)
The hero and bouncer at the disco quote directly from the essay "May I enter at this time?" "No" etc...
At least this is how I read it. Never read any official bulletin on the (further) use of Kafka in that movie. But of the direct quote I am certain.
I recommend reading it. It's short and great.
Now he is old and about to die and asks the gatekeeper:
"In all these years, why has no one else ever come to seek admittence to the law?"
"Because these gates were intended only for you, and now that your almost dead, I am going to close them."

|I think it was Sean Penn's character. It was also an early film for Tom Cruise and Timothy Hutton.|
Nov 14, 2003 3:18 PM
|I seem to think it was Tom Cruise, as he was machine gunning down everything in sight. He looked a little boyishly pudgy then.
Nov 14, 2003 3:23 PM
|The more I thought about it, the image of Cruise with the machine gun came back to me. I guess in hindsight, Penn seems more likely to play the psycho role.|

|It was actually "What we have here, is failure to communicate."
Seems Strother Martin flubbed the line and deropped the "a" out of that sentence. Turned into a big discussion some time ago but after watching the film again on DVD I was careful to watch that scene again and he definatly left out the "a".
