Still good after 20 years

I saw this film 20 years ago and enjoyed it then, so I thought I'd check it out again in my clean and sober persona, which is where I've been for the last 19 years. Who knows? I could have been hallucinating.

I'm glad I did. This movie is Martin Scorsese at his best. When a BIG picture fell through, he took on this small project. When it was done, he said to the producers, something like, "Thanks for showing me I can still make films". No kidding.

This is a real NY movie... capturing the city better than pretty much anything I've ever seen. And the travails of poor Griffin Dunne just trying to get back home uptown, are absolutely hilarious.

I won't spoil it, by recounting the plot. Suffice it to say, I cannot imagine anybody being disappointed.

Either I'm living in the past, or this movie really holds up 20 years later.
