This marriage of indelible imagery with electric, seemingly incongruous pop songs wouldn't be bettered until, well, the next time Scorsese decided to do it.

In countless ways, right down to the detail of modern TV crime shows, Mean Streets is one of the source points of modern movies.

Scorsese exalts cinema as the mediator of reality, memory and reverie, the demonic art that enthralls the church boy

I contend that Mean Streets (1973) is [Scorsese's] greatest work and his most underappreciated.

While a product of its time -- freewheeling, energetic and raw -- Mean Streets is well worth seeing for the brilliance of De Niro.
March 31, 2008
Scorsese is exceptionally good at guiding his largely unknown cast to near-flawless recreations of types. Outstanding in this regard is De Niro.

Everyone involved brings a near-dizzying rhythm to this quintessential 'New York movie' and its collection of outsider-characters, all intoxicated on themselves.

...a gritty, one-of-a-kind, unromantic, down-and-dirty look at the streets of New York like no film had portrayed those streets and their people before.
