  • Director: Martin Scorsese
  • Writer: Martin Scorsese; Mardik Martin

CGiii Comment

Early Scorsese - when he had something.

There is an utterly pointless scene with a gay couple...other than that, there is little CGiii interest.

The young heavyweights deliver powerful performances and demonstrate the macho-chic of the time and place.

New York never looked so bleak.

The(ir) Blurb...

The future is set for Tony and Michael - owning a neighbour- hood bar and making deals in the mean streets of New York city's Little Italy. For Charlie, the future is less clearly defined. A small-time hood, he works for his uncle, making collections and reclaiming bad debts. He's probably too nice to succeed. In love with a woman his uncle disapproves of (because of her epilepsy) and a friend of her cousin, Johnny Boy, a near psychotic whose trouble-making threatens them all - he can't reconcile opposing values. A failed attempt to escape (to Brooklyn) moves them all a step closer to a bitter, almost preordained future.
