“The movie's blazing energy is still astounding; the vérité street-scenes are terrific and Scorsese's pioneering use of popular music is genuinely thrilling.” - Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian

The New York auteur draws on elements of his childhood and his relationship with the Church in this kinetic drama about two cousins (Harvey Kietel and Bobby DeNiro) struggling to make a name for themselves on the mean streets of Little Italy.  

“Mean Streets was an attempt to put myself and my old friends on the screen, to show how we lived, what life was like in Little Italy”.

- Martin Scorsese
