Mean Streets

Sunday, Apr 23, 2017

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1973, 110 mins. Digital projection*. With Harvey Keitel, Robert De Niro. Some Scorsese trademarks—thugs, rock music, insomnia, kinetic editing, Keitel, and De Niro—come together in Mean Streets, his breakthrough story of a wannabe gangster (Keitel) with more conscience than is good for business. The film synthesized his formative years in Little Italy, and its premiere at the New York Film Festival was a milestone, affirming his status as one of the most gifted American directors of his time. *Please note format change, due to print shipping issue.
