Mean Streets tends to fall victim to underrating, I commonly see users post Martin Scorseses defining films as Goodfellas/Taxi Driver/Raging Bull but Mean Streets deserves a spot in that category, if only for it being his first major feature.
The very last shot of the movie is of Martin Scorsese's mother, Catherine Scorsese, closing a window.
Charlie's best friend, Johnny Boy (awesomely portrayed by De Niro) is a self destructive troublemaker with a lot of debts who doesn't seem to care about anything.
