The granddaddy of the modern crime cinema, Mean Streets heralded the arrival of screen legends Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel.
One of the Martin Scorsese's (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Wolf of Wall Street) most personal and powerful films, Mean Streets stars De Niro (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, The Godfather Part 2) and Keitel (Taxi Driver, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction) as Johnny Boy and Charlie, Italian-American cousins, small time criminals hustling, fighting and carousing, doing whatever it takes to survive in the rough and ready New York neighbourhoods.
Johnny Boy seems to spend his life getting into trouble, leaving the slightly older, and wiser Charlie to get him out of it. Charlie wants to make enough money to buy a restaurant, and he wants to drum some sense into Johnny Boy. But when Johnny Boy reneges on a debt to a loan shark, things get nasty, and the cousins find themselves having to flee a hired killer.
With a new 4K restoration supervised and approved by Director Martin Scorsese and Collaborator Thelma Schoonmaker, Mean Streets is released on Blu-ray and 4K UHD 15th January 2024 from Second Sight Films.
