Two-time Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro ("GoodFellas," "The Godfather, Part II") stars in Martin Scorsese's ("Raging Bull," "The Age of Innocence") drama of young men coming to manhood by the code of New York's Little Italy. A harrowing, intense, and grueling dramatic experience -- brilliantly acted and directed. Also starring Academy Award-nominee Harvey Keitel ("Pulp Fiction," "The Piano") and future producer Amy Robinson ("After Hours," "Running on Empty"). Inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry. Recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the 400 greatest American films of all time. Leonard Maltin praises this as the "technically dazzling film that put director Scorsese on the map... and deservedly so," giving it his highest rating of "****" (four stars).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: No matter how bleak the milieu, no matter how heartbreaking the narrative, some films are so thoroughly, beautifully realized they have a kind of tonic effect that has no relation to the subject matter.
Fresh: Scorsese is exceptionally good at guiding his largely unknown cast to near-flawless recreations of types. Outstanding in this regard is De Niro.
Fresh: Its greatness lies in its leanness, with nary a word, a move, a gesture that's nonessential.
Fresh: In countless ways, right down to the detail of modern TV crime shows, Mean Streets is one of the source points of modern movies.
Mean Streets is an excellent movie. Directed by one of the best directors ever, Martin Scorese. Wonderful performances by Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel. Very worth buying but defientely to needs to be checked out by Scorese and/or De Niro fans.
Great best Scorsese film ever
Absolutely stunning. Everything about this film was great. As usual a phenomenal soundtrack which always fits the scenario, wonderfully pieced together story, and you really get to know the characters. I highly recommend it over almost every other film created by Martin Scorcese!
A very early project of scorsese's that bristles with energy and style. One of my all time favorites
