Film: Mean StreetsFilm, The Screen Wed 22 Apr, 6.30pm
This season, our film programme, The Screen at Contemporary, presents 24 Frames: the films and influences of Martin Scorsese.
Early films for Scorsese, Harvey Keitel and Robert DeNiro, Mean Streets follows a small crime gang in Little Italy. It marked Scorsese’s arrival as a true cinematic voice, and strong themes of sin, good and evil are here in abundance. Interesting references to dream, cinema and guilt are all at play, subtly implying the presence of priest, psychoanalyst and filmmaker. These preoccupations would weave their way through most his films.
A huge influence on this film - this is paired with I Vitelloni, which we will screen on Wed 29 Apr, 6.30pm.
