The Awful Truth (1937): I won't lie, I much prefer Cary Grant in "The Philadelphia Story", although he was hilarious here as well. Especially the first half was brilliant while it all just sorta fell apart the last 20 minutes. A fun watch, but no must-see in my book. Mean Streets (1973): A little event for me: this is the 800th movie I've logged on Letterboxd, the social platform for movie buffs. So now I've watched 800 movies - this may not seem that much, but considering I really got going with my passion for movies only about five or six years ago, I think it could be worse so anyway, I celebrated this milestone with a classic I had yet to see and it was SO worth it. Terrific movie, I love the style of it all with lots of 60s music and a very documentary-like tone. Scorsese almost seems to have foreshadowed Scandinavia's Dogma95 in a way. And I get the feeling it influenced A LOT of movies for decades to come. The grittiness is absolutely gripping and never lets go of the audience until it's over. Amazing movie! I'm very glad to finally have seen this milestone of modern gangster cinema.
