Quadrophenia (1979)
7/10
Basically the British version of Mean Streets
26 January 2021
This is basically the British version of Martin Scorsese's film Mean Streets. They're both 70's films about young gang members in a major city taking drugs, partying, getting into fights etc. Also, they both don't have much of a storyline, taking more of a slice of life approach. They even have similar soundtracks. And of course, (minor spoilers) things don't go well for the protagonists at the end, but the endings are a bit ambiguous.

There are some differences though. Mean Streets is a bit more experimental, feels more like a documentary, and it's scenes feel a bit more disconnected with each other.

But overall I'd say I liked them about the same, so if you liked Mean Streets you may like Quadrophenia, and vice versa.
