På skyggesiden Regissert av Martin Scorsese
The intoxicating style is Scorsese’s own, rooted in a desire to transmit his feelings about each moment in the most visceral way possible. The rhythms of the rock and pop songs on the soundtrack feel like racing heartbeats, and each camera movement suggests the director whipping his head around to take in what’s going on.

Martin Scorsese’s intrusive insistence on his abstract, metaphysical theme—the possibility of modern sainthood—marks this 1973 film, his first to attract critical notice, as still somewhat immature, yet the acting and editing have such an original, tumultuous force that the picture is completely gripping.

Mean Streets is a terrific example of intricate, tough filmmaking. Like Renoir’s M. Lange gem, Scorsese’s whip-like style moves his ensemble with incredible vivacity… The poignant street film is a once-in-a-lifetime work: his own neighborhood, talented actors before they’ve scored and all the same age (nothing to lose), it’s an intensely autobiographical work.
