    This year, I decided to celebrate my favorite filmmaker's birthday by watching an early film of his. In many ways, Mean Streets is a blueprint on what Scorsese would explore in his later work.

    God awful. Characters so lacking in any nuance or believability it feels like a terrible episode of Tales From The Crypt or something. Incredibly poor filmmaking from the editing to the cinematography to the writing. A waste of time, and feels far longer than 84 minutes. The "woke" humor is so fucking terrible and tries to distract from the borderline copaganda this is. It has lines of dialogue about how people don't like the cops that all the characters moan and roll their eyes at that are just nauseating.

    A masterpiece of genre film. I loved every second. Vince Vaughn gave a stellar performance. Fight scenes were brutal and incredible.
