Movie Summary

Director:
Martin Scorsese
Released:
1973
Rating:
R
Two-time Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro ("GoodFellas," "The Godfather, Part II") stars in Martin Scorsese's ("Raging Bull," "The Age of Innocence") drama of young men coming to manhood by the code of New York's Little Italy. A harrowing, intense, and grueling dramatic experience -- brilliantly acted and directed. Also starring Academy Award-nominee Harvey Keitel ("Pulp Fiction," "The Piano") and future producer Amy Robinson ("After Hours," "Running on Empty"). Inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry. Recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the 400 greatest American films of all time. Leonard Maltin praises this as the "technically dazzling film that put director Scorsese on the map... and deservedly so," giving it his highest rating of "****" (four stars).

Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets isn't so much a gangster movie as a perceptive, sympathetic, finally tragic story about how it is to grow up in a gangster environment.

    Empire

    Terrific. Top shelf talent at the top of their game, working immediately before they would change Hollywood.

    The Guardian Peter Bradshaw

    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.
