MEAN STREETS (1973)

 

 

MEAN STREETS isn’t without its flaws, at times it feels a little clumsy and more than a bit unpolished, but those flaws are soon turned into a really organic experience that the audience is sharing with the two leads Johnny Boy and Charlie played by Robert De Niro (his first collaboration with Scorsese) and Harvey Keitel. This is an incredibly personal film for Scorsese, he is aware of both his strengths and weaknesses but lays them both out in equal measure for the world to see, and his career would never again be the same.

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
