Martin Scorsese has crafted many iconic dramas so it easy to forget he has a funny bone as well.  In episode three of Changing Reels we explore Scorsese’s dark comedy After Hours.  The film follows an office worker who, in an attempt to woo a girl he meets in a coffee shop, encounters the worst night of his life in SoHo.  We also discuss our short films picks of the week:  Dony Permedi’s Kiwi! and Bradley Tangonan’s High Rider.

Cohost of Changing Reels, Courtney Small from Cinema Axis, consumes everything cinema from big budget spectacles to small foreign fare. He has contributed pieces to various publications and has been a guest on several film related podcasts. Courtney is also a member of the Online Film Critics Society as well as the Canadian Association of Online Film Critics.

Cohost and Editor of Changing Reels, Andrew Hathaway from Can’t Stop the Movies, is more of a hermit than his charming cohost. He spends what may be seen as an unhealthy amount of time analyzing cinematic fare as light as Magic Mike XXL and as enigmatic as The Midnight Swim. When he’s not taking a deep dive into cinema he’s contributed to books like Thoughts on The Thin Man. The partnership between Andrew and Courtney started through their podcast series on the movies of Denis Villeneuve and blossomed into Changing Reels.

The art for Changing Reels comes commissioned from Seth Gorden, Andrew’s frequent collaborator on Why Video Games and one of the creative minds behind Earnest and Purcell.
