MUBI Special

City of God

Fernando Meirelles, Kátia Lund Brazil, 2002

After Mean Streets we travel to Brazil for an epic tale of favela life that crackles with passion, violence, color, and visual wizardry profoundly influenced by Scorsese’s seminal gangster study. Taking the new millennium generation of movie buffs by storm, this is an arthouse staple of the 00s.

Mean Streets

Martin Scorsese United States, 1973

The great Martin Scorsese made his artistic arrival with his third feature, and by our counts, his first masterpiece: Mean Streets is a fiery and emotionally charged New York story articulated through the beginning of Scorsese’s baroque style. Starring Harvey Keitel, Robert De Niro & Amy Robinson.
