    The Multiplicity of Generic Discourses and the Meaning and Pleasure of Mean Streets

    by Marc Raymond

    Abstract: Unlike most critical readings of Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets, which have concentrated on its ethnic (Italian-American) and/or its religious (Catholic) elements, this essay places the film in the context of the New Hollywood of its time and emphasizes its social dimensions and the pleasure offered by its transgeneric qualities.

    Résumé: Au contraire de la majorité des analyses du film Mean Streets de Martin Scorsese, qui se concentre sur le caractère ethnique (italo-américain) et religieux (catholique) du discours, cet article situe le film dans le contexte du « New Hollywood » du début des années 1970 et considère ses dimensions sociales ainsi que le plaisir qu’offre sa forme trans-générique.
