Favorite movie that takes place almost exclusively at night?

After Hours- if my memory serves me correctly the only non-nightime scene is at the very end

Aside from the greatest scene in the movie.

American Graffiti is from sundown to sunup.


Although the ending scene with Richard Dreyfus on the plane is later during the day.

Into the Night? (with Jeff Goldblum) at least i think its mostly at night...then again i think it starts in the day and goes through the night so this would be better if the thread was "movies that are 24 hours of the day" or "half night" or something...

There are two day scenes - one with Penguin's formal introduction to Gotham, and when Bruce and Selina are walking down the street, defending their alter-ego's actions. I suppose it still counts though, as the sky is never actually seen. That Gotham City locale was shot entirely indoors, and it certainly shows in those scenes. Outside isn't really outside.

I figured I'd see a bunch of posts for "After Hours".




One of my all-time favorite movies is "American Graffiti".

Did The Ref take place entirely during one night?
