Scorsese's First, But Not All I Hoped For.

Seeing as this is Scorsese's first film, I gave it more of a chance to sink in. It was an overall pretty good flick, but the pace was off, and I wasn't really hooked from beginning to end. The first half hour or so is rather slow, showing what the characters are about, so that was fine, but you never really get a feel for what the movie is about until after awhile. Or maybe I just missed it. Once ... read more

Easily, one of the worst gangster films I've ever seen.

First of all, I'm not really a fan of gangster movies, so I never particularly cared for any of them, mainly because they're all the same, and your like sitting there for over an hour watching blokes who think they're better and superior to everyone else, and who in their right mind would want to watch that? Gangster films are ... read more

Going back and watching Mean Streets today it's little wonder that Scorsese has evolved into the great and iconic director that he is today. This film reveals glimpses of so many of the stylistic touches that have made Scorsese a one of a kind director. His use of space, music, and lighting, and the absolute diliberateness in which he uses the camera to evoke mood, energy, and emotion are all here... read more

The future is set for Tony and Michael - owning a neighbour- hood bar and making deals in the mean streets of New York city's Little Italy. For Charlie, the future is less clearly defined. A small-time hood, he works for his uncle, making collections and reclaiming bad debts. He's probably too nice to succeed. In love with a woman his uncle disapproves of (because of her epilepsy) and a friend of her cousin, Johnny Boy, a near psychotic whose trouble-making threatens them all - he can't reconcile opposing values. A failed attempt to escape (to Brooklyn) moves them all a step closer to a bitter, almost preordained future.

"4.3, Netflx, rewatch Kauriinmetsästäjän katsottuani halusin katsoa lisää nuorta Robert De Niroa. Tässä oli nuori Robert De Niro, joten olen tyytyväinen. Olin nähnyt tämän aikaisemmin, mutta nyt vasta älysin kuinka paljon Mean Streets muistuttaa Cassavetesin ja Falkin tähdittämää Mikey and Nicky -leffaa. "

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1970's) (158 movies items)

" Notes: Basically, after struggling for many years, Martin Scorsese finally managed to get his breakthrough. Of course, Robert De Niro was involved and he would also get his breakthrough thanks to this movie. Honestly, it has been years since I saw this one and it definitely needs a re-watch. I don't think it is one of Scorsese's best movies. Eventually, he would make ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Raging Bull’, ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Casino’ and those are only some of the movies he would direct w"
