"Martin Scorsese emerged as a generation-defining filmmaker with this gritty portrait of 1970s New York City, one of the most influential works of American independent cinema. Set in the insular Little Italy neighborhood of Scorsese's youth, Mean Streets follows guilt-ridden small-time ringleader Charlie as he deals with the debts owed by his dangerously volatile best pal, Johnny Boy, and pressure from his headstrong girlfriend, Teresa. As their intertwined lives spiral out of control, Scorsese showcases his precocious mastery of film style--evident in everything from his propulsive editing rhythms to the lovingly curated soundtrack--to create an electrifying vision of sin and redemption."--Container.
