Although Martin Scorsese likes to debate on whether mega-box office comic book films are classified as cinema, the non-debate is that his films are definitely considered as classics.

With this week’s start of the 2021 TCM Classic Film Festival, the popular celebration is virtual once again due to the ongoing pandemic. For this year, it expands its offering not only for TCM, but added its viewing schedule for a different audience at HBO Max.

As part of the Section: The Masters of Filmmaking, Martin Scorsese plans to introduce Mean Streets and Goodfellas at this year’s celebration of the classic movies.

The introduction for Goodfellas is on HBO Max, which is available starting from May 6. Mean Streets introduction is presented on TCM beginning on May 6 at 11:15 p.m. ET.

Martin Scorsese is one of the greatest directors of all time with his cinematic approach towards the visceral nature of violence and relationships. Staring with Mean Streets in 1973, it looks at the gritty life in Little Italy. Then his directorial fame expanded with looney Taxi Drive in 1976 and boxing film Raging Bull in 1980. Just with those films alone, it cemented his mark in cinema history. His films repertoire expanded in the 1980s with After Hours, The Color of Money, and The Last Temptation of Christ. In the 1990s, he didn’t slow down by giving audiences Goodfellas, Casino, Gangs of New York, and The Aviator. Although nominated five times as best director at the Academy Awards, he finally won in 2007 with the 2006’s gangster thriller The Departed.

Here are the lineups for Turner Classic Movies Schedule and the HBO Max Lineup.

2021 TCM Classic Film Festival runs starting Thursday, May 6, through Sunday, May 9.
