Dec 31, 2003 · Seen after 25 years, “Mean Streets” is a little creaky at times; this is an early film by a director who was still learning, and who learned so fast that by 1976 he would be ready to make “Taxi Driver,” one of the greatest films of all time, also with De Niro and Keitel.
Powered by JustWatch. 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. Its characters (like Scorsese himself) have grown up in New York’s Little Italy, and they understand everything about that small slice of human society except how to survive in it.
The MEAN STREETS of New York City's Little Italy are all that Charlie (Harvey Keitel) knows, and the only life available to him is in his uncle's organized-crime business. He's torn between the woman he's falling for who wants out of the neighborhood, his faith that teaches him that the fires of hell are what awaits him, and his ambition to make life better by climbing higher in the ranks of the family business.
