Mean Streets announced Martin Scorsese's arrival as a new filmmaking force - and marked his best historic teaming with Robert De Niro. De Niro is Johnny Boy, a small-time gambler in big-time debt to loan sharks, whilst Harvey Keitel plays Charlie, working his way up the ranks of a local mob.
Fourteen years after being imprisoned, psychopath Max Cady (Robert De Niro) emerges with a single-minded mission: to seek revenge on his attorney Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte). Realising he is legally powerless to protect his beautiful wife and his troubled teenage daughter, Sam resorts to unorthodox measures which lead to an unforgettable showdown on Cape Fear.
Sam "Ace" Rothstein (De Niro) is riding high as front man for the Mob's multi-billion dollar Las Vegas operation. With Ace's boyhood pal, hot-headed enforcer Nicky Santoro (Pesci) it's a winning hand, until sexy wild card Ginger McKenna (Stone) turns up the heat. Casino is a dizzying look beyond the closed doors and behind the eyes of the men and women whose fortunes - and lives - were made and lost with a roll of the dice.
To four boys growing up on the streets in the mid 1960s, New York City's Hell's Kitchen was a place ruled by corruption with the neighbourhood guided by both priests and gangsters. The children who grew up there shared joyful times, but subscribed to a sacred social code - crimes against the neighbourhood were not permitted, and when they did occur, punishment was severe. This is the story of four friends that made a mistake that changed their lives forever.
Considered to be one of the most powerful films in motion picture history, Taxi Driver provoked fierce controversy upon release, running into censorship problems in America as a result of scenes of violence, in addition to the outcry at a 13-year-old Jodie Foster co-starring as a prostitute. Academy Award nominated for Best Film, Best Actor (Robert De Niro) and Best Supporting Actress (Jodie Foster).
