MEAN STREETS
1973, Warner Brothers, 110 min, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Director Martin Scorsese’s shattering, insider’s look at small-time hoods in Little Italy stars Harvey Keitel as a guilt-obsessed Catholic trying to make good, and Robert De Niro as Keitel’s terminal screw-up of a cousin, Johnny Boy. Most of MEAN STREETS was shot - believe it or not - in Los Angeles (only exteriors were filmed in New York). It quickly became Scorsese’s calling card as a director, and a stunning prequel to the awesome TAXI DRIVER.
