Martin Scorsese's breakthrough movie is as invigorating today as it was 40 years ago. Lifting the lid on the manners and mores of the Little Italy neighbourhood where Scorsese grew up (famously aspiring to the priesthood), Mean Streets has an exuberance and vitality only Goodfellas can match - but with a moral compass the later film misses. Already the dynamic camerawork, contrapuntal editing and rock'n'roll scoring are firmly in place; while the young Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro bounce each other all over the screen.
