An offbeat treat

Depressed insomniac Ed Okin (an excellent and engaging performance by Jeff Goldblum) gets mixed-up in a crazy misadventure involving stolen emeralds and various dangerous criminals after he crosses paths with beautiful mysterious blonde Diana (a sharp and appealing portrayal by a positively radiant Michelle Pfeiffer) one fateful night.

Director John Landis keeps the enjoyably zany and eventful story moving along at a constant pace, maintains a spot-on quirky tone throughout, and astutely captures the more seedy and surreal side of Los Angeles at night. Ron Koslow's clever and twisty script offers a delicious blend of comedy, action, romance, and thriller elements.

Moreover, this film further benefits from fine acting from Richard Farnsworth as kindly, but ailing old rich guy Jack Caper, Irene Pappas as fearsome real estate mogul Shaheen Parvici, Kathryn Harrold as perky aspiring actress Christie, Bruce McGill as Diana's irate Elvis impersonator brother Charlie, David Bowie as smooth English hitman Colin Morris, and Clu Gulager as a shady fed. In addition, there are a wondrous wealth of cool cameos from various directors who include David Cronenberg, Roger Vadim (marvelously suave and sinister as a French baddie),Lawrence Kasden, Paul Bartel, Don Siegel, Jonathan Demme, and Paul Mazursky (very funny as some hapless schnook). Landis has a sidesplitting role as a hot-tempered Iranian goon. The moments of brutal violence are more than a little jarring, but they add to the movie's singularity and overall unpredictability. Robert Paynter's glittery cinematography provides a nice noirish look. Great bluesy music by Ira Newborn and B.B. King, too. A real oddball delight.

weird night out

Ed Okin (Jeff Goldblum) struggles with insomnia. His wife cheats and his job is a dead-end. His best friend Herb (Dan Aykroyd) suggests going to Vegas. At LAX, he gets involved with jewel smuggler Diana (Michelle Pfeiffer) on the run from four Iranian gangsters. It's the beginning of two wild nights in the city.

This is most memorable for glimpses of a naked Michelle Pfeiffer. She's the engine behind this movie. It's perfectly believable to have her lead him everywhere. Goldblum has a tired insomniac persona and the movie meanders in a good way. It's a bunch of random adventures that don't always go anywhere or end in laughs. The Iranians can't seem to open doors and that's good for a small chuckle. It's a weird nights-out movie and I don't mind spending the time with these two characters.

One of My Favorite Movies of the 80's

In Los Angeles, the insomniac aerospace engineer Ed Okin (Jeff Goldblum) has a boring job and a cold relationship with his wife. One afternoon, Ed leaves his job earlier to rest and discovers that his wife Ellen (Stacey Pickren) is cheating him with her colleague Stan (Carmen Argenziano). During the night, Ed can not sleep and he decides to drive to the airport to kill time. When he parks in the parking lot of the airport, he sees a beautiful woman, Diana (Michelle Pfeiffer),chased by four Iranians. He helps her and drives away to her place. Sooner he discovers that Diana has smuggled six emeralds from Iran and now she is chased by the gang of Shaheen Parvici (Irene Papas) and by the dangerous British killer Colin Morris (David Bowie) that works for the French Monsieur Melville (Roger Vadim). Ed Okin has an unforgettable night with Diana.

"Into the Night" is one of my favorite movies of the 80's. I have just watched this film at least for the sixth time and Michelle Feiffer is stunningly gorgeous. The engaging story is funny and one attraction is to identify the cameo of directors and other personalities, such as David Cronenberg, John Landis, Don Siegel, Jonathan Demme, and Lawrence Kasdan working with names like Vera Miles, Irene Papas, David Bowie and Dan Aykroyd among others. The awesome music of B.B. King gives a touch of class to this wonderful film. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Um Romance Muito Perigoso" ("A Very Dangerous Romance")

Note: On 14 April 2019, I saw this film again.
