"In this '80s-drenched insomniac caper, Jeff Goldblum plays a baggy-eyed depressive who just found out that his wife is cheating on him. With little else to do, he ventures off aimlessly into the Los Angeles twilight and has a run in with a beautiful jewel smuggler (Michelle Pfeiffer) who snags him in her plot to make off with the Shah of Iran’s emeralds. It's the delirious West Coast flip side of Martin Scorsese’s AFTER HOURS, where the city after dark is truly dangerous and the innocent in its web finds he’s unexpectedly at home in the dark. John Landis’s INTO THE NIGHT takes a classic noir story—the middle-class stooge jolted out of his protected but dull existence and plunged into a nightmarish odyssey into the urban underworld—and treats it with appropriate dreamlike illogic and comedic chops. Featuring David Bowie as a professional assassin (who has a knife fight with Carl Perkins!) and sporting a soundtrack by the one and only B.B. King, INTO THE NIGHT is also home to one of the most staggering murderer's row of cameos ever assembled: we’re talking David Cronenberg, Roger Vadim, Paul Mazurski, Jim Henson, Jonathan Demme, Amy Heckerling, Lawrence Kasdan, Don Siegel, Rick Baker, Jack Arnold, Paul Bartel, Richard Franklin, Carl Gottlieb, Dan Aykroyd and more! INTO THE NIGHT is screwball neon noir at its best."
