At the bar, Paul learns that there have been a string of burglaries in the neighborhood. The bar's owner, Tom Schorr, offers to give Paul money for a subway token, but he is unable to open the cash register. They exchange keys so that Paul can go to Tom's place to fetch the cash register key.
After he attempts to confront them, they flee, dropping the sculpture in the process. When Paul returns the sculpture to Kiki and Marcy's apartment, he discovers Marcy has committed suicide; Kiki and a man named Horst have already left to go to a place called Club Berlin. Paul reports Marcy's death before remembering he was supposed to return Tom's keys. Paul attempts to return to Tom's bar, but it is locked out with a sign indicating that Tom will be back in half an hour.
Paul meets Julie again in the street, and she invites him up to her apartment to wait for Tom, where Paul is unnerved by her own strange behavior. He then goes back to Tom's bar only for Tom to get a call informing him of the death of Marcy, who was his girlfriend.
Paul decides to return to Julie's apartment, where she begins to sketch his portrait while they talk. Ultimately, Paul rejects Julie's advances and leaves.

Narrowly escaping, Paul meets a woman named Gail, an ice cream truck driver, who eventually mistakes him for the burglar plaguing the neighborhood, and she and a mob of local residents relentlessly pursue him. He meets a man who he asks for help, and the man assumes that he is looking for a gay hookup.
Paul discovers that as payback for rejecting her, Julie used his image in a wanted poster that names him as the burglar. He ultimately seeks refuge back at Club Berlin. Paul explains he is being pursued and June, also a sculptor who lives in the club's basement, offers to help him. She protects him by pouring plaster on him in order to disguise him as a sculpture.
However, she won't let him out of the plaster, which eventually hardens, trapping Paul in a position that resembles Kiki's sculpture. Neil and Pepe then break into the Club Berlin and steal him, placing him in the back of their van. He falls from the van right outside the gate to his office building as the sun is rising. Paul brushes himself off and goes to his desk, bringing the film full circle.
It spurred him to focus on independent companies and smaller projects. The screenplay, originally titled Lies after the Joe Frank monologue that inspired the story,  was written as part of an assignment for his film course at Columbia University. Minion was 26 years old at Dont Leave - Faithless - Reverence (Vinyl, Album) time the film was produced.
One of Scorsese's inputs involves the dialogue between Paul and the doorman at Club Berlin, inspired by Franz Kafka 's Before the Lawone of the short stories included in his novel The Trial. The film was originally to be directed by Tim Burtonbut Scorsese read the script at a time when he was unable to get financial backing to complete The Last Temptation of Christand Burton gladly stepped aside when Scorsese expressed interest in 1995 After Hour #17 - Culturevibe* - 1995 After Hour #17 . British director Michael Powell took part in the production process of the film Powell and editor Thelma Schoonmaker married soon afterward.
Nobody was sure how the film should end. Powell said Touch Me - The Doors - The Soft Parade Paul must finish up back at work, but this was initially dismissed as too unlikely and difficult. They tried many other endings, and a few were even filmed, but the only one that everyone felt really worked was to have Paul finish up back at work just as the new day was starting.
Film critic Roger Ebert gave After Hours a positive review and a rating of four out of four stars. He praised the film as one of the year's best and said it "continues Scorsese's attempt to combine comedy and satire with unrelenting pressure and a sense of all-pervading paranoia. Dunne and the others, but which leave you feeling somewhat conned.
Its consensus states "Bursting with frantic energy and tinged with black humor, After Hours is a masterful — and often overlooked — detour in Martin Scorsese's filmography. Radio artist Joe Frank later filed a lawsuit, claiming the screenplay lifted its plot setup and portions of dialogue, particularly in the first 30 minutes of the 1995 After Hour #17 - Culturevibe* - 1995 After Hour #17 , from his NPR Playhouse monologue "Lies".
This film belongs in a grouping that revolves around a young working professional who is placed under threat, named the " yuppie nightmare cycle",  a subgenre of films which combine two genres in itself — screwball comedy and film noir. Some critics present a psychoanalytic view of the film; Paul is constantly emasculated by women in the film: by Kiki with her Motörhead - Overkill aggressiveness and a lust for masochism Marcy turning down his sexual advances, Julie For All Those Who Died - Various - Speed Kills.But Whos Dying? Gail turning a vigilante mob on him, and June entrapping him in plaster, rendering him helpless.
There are many references to castration within the film,  most of which are shown when women are present. In the bathroom in Terminal Bar where Julie first encounters Paul, there is an image scrawled on the wall of a shark biting a man's erect penis. The musical score for After Hours was composed by Howard Shorewho went on to collaborate multiple times with Scorsese.
Although an official soundtrack album was never released, many of Shore's cues appear on the album Howard Shore: Collector's Edition Vol.
