Mean Streets (1973)

Directed by
Martin Scorsese

The future is set for Tony (David Proval) and Michael (Richard Romanus). The two own a neighbourhood bar and make deals in the mean streets of New York city's 'Little Italy'.

For Charlie (Harvey Keitel), however, the future is less clearly defined. A small-time hood, he works for his uncle, making collections and reclaiming bad debts. The problem is probably that he is too nice to succeed.

In love with a woman his uncle disapproves of (because she is epileptic) and a friend of her cousin, Johnny Boy Cercello (Robert De Niro), a near psychotic whose trouble-making threatens them all - he can't reconcile opposing values.

A failed attempt to escape to Brooklyn moves them all a step closer to a bitter, almost preordained future.
