In his sophomore effort, Mean Streets, Martin Scorsese constructs what could be considered a prequel to Goodfellas (Casino being the sequel). In Mean Streets we see a young Robert De Niro and Harvey Kitel honing their acting chops to perfect the ultimate unstable streetwise gangster-in-training. The movie is complete with signature Scorsese visuals and soundtrack. It’s definitely worth seeing if you are a fan of Marty’s and Co’s work.
