Mean Streets

Preview by Jack Foley

To celebrate the release of Martin Scorsese’s truly unforgettable knockout classic Mean Streets – on DVD and Blu-ray on May 18, 2015 – we have a copy on Blu-ray to giveaway courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment.

One of the best films of the 1970s, “Mean Streets” is the granddaddy of the modern crime cinema and it heralded the arrival of screen legends Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel.

New special features include audio commentary with Martin Scorsese, actress Amy Robinson and co-writer Mardik Martin, the vintage featurette “Back on the Block” and the original theatrical trailer.

“One of the best American films of the decade” Time Out

“An acclaimed classic for a long time but what doesn’t get said too often is how wonderfully funny it is… The movie’s blazing energy is still astounding” – The Guardian

Synopsis

One of the director’s most personal and powerful films, Mean Streets stars De Niro and Keitel 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.
