Martin Scorsese United States, 1973

cin-e-phile22's rating of the film Mean Streets

A fusion of so many schools of cinema can be seen in this one. Overlong in certain places, could've been better with tighter editing. De Niro's acting is a loose cannon in a few scenes without proper direction from Scorcese. Should've been a better attempt considering he was already five years into his filmmaking career by this point. But it still feels just as heavy.
