    Basic starter film. If you like genuine Italian rough stuff and Rolling Stones song snippets this first offering for Martian Scorsese will be good choice for your insomnia. Hand held camera work and red "dinner club" lighting takes a a decent look at New Yorks "mean Streets". Of course you have to include a few Jewish bar owners who get behind the mobs eight ball for money owed. Plenty of gore and underage girls for the organized crime wise guys. Toss in a few drug dealers and street walkers a couple of strippers and stir for a late night bash where everyone has a opioid problem.

  • DeNiro's Coming Out Party !

    The Genius that is Robert DeNiro is present here. All of the knowledge and the foundation of his film acting training He basically "steals" every scene he takes command of the screen. In some people's mind's this all would be categorized as "Bad acting" but in films it is more commonly called " Star Quality". Love him or hate him this is the film that elevated DeNiro into becoming a "household name". As a film, in itself on its own, it is a projection only of the creative genius of Scorsese. His use of secular music, his lurid street cinematography the friendships of actual and authentic neighborhood people. This film is a template for many films which were to follow. Personally I have no problem classifying this as a "masterpiece".

    The amazing breakthrough film from Scorsese. Keitel is excellent as an honorable thug who pays for his sins on the street, but De Niro is the true star in a performance that won him the National Society for Film Critics award. The dialogue and grim look of Little Italy, plus the handheld cinematography add realism to the story of Keitel's attempts to navigate his morale's in a crime-filled setting. In short, this is the film which showcased a promising filmmaker who would make "Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull" and "Goodfellas." I give it a 4.5/5.
