Sample text

For Schickel, these classical filmmakers offered aesthetic experiences not on display in Mean Streets, and they grounded their personality in their formal style rather than their social milieu. Despite the mainstreaming of the text, Mean Streets remained too grounded in sociology for many auteurists. In 1974, following the critical success of Mean Streets, Scorsese would make his first film financed by a Hollywood studio. This was very much a film of the period: how the personnel were assembled, how the film was shot, and how the genre of the woman’s melodrama was dealt with were indicative of how New Hollywood worked (see Grist, 2000: 98–122).

Directed by Martin Scorsese. Produced by American International Pictures (AIP). I showed Boxcar Bertha in a rough-cut of about two hours to John Cassavetes. John took me back to his office, looked at me and said, ‘Marty, you’ve just spent a whole year of your life making a piece of shit. It’s a good picture, but you’re better than the people who make this kind of movie. ’ Jay Cocks, who was then the Time film critic, had shown him Who’s That Knocking at My Door and he had loved it. He said I must go back to making that kind of film and was there anything I had that I was really dying to make.

I think it blows away Mean Streets. The use of slow motion when it is going across the people laughing, and, I just think there are things in that movie that are so powerful. I mean he’s jump-cutting, he’s playing with the medium and having fun with it. Of course I think Mean Streets is great as well. A. after NYU, I was there for a brief period of time, and he (Scorsese) was cutting Mean Streets. And one of his other students was there working on it as well. So I saw an early cut of it. I saw a lot of stuff that I thought was amazing but they cut out of the movie.
