Who's That Knocking At My Door (1967)

After watching Mean Streets (1973), I was a little curious of Martin Scorsese's debut film Who's That Knocking At My Door (also known as I Call First). Thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue, soundtrack and the relationship between a very young Harvey Keitel and Zina Bethune (whoever she is). It was an insight in to late 60’s New York, friendships, class, religion and sexuality. It’s definitely a dvd I would like on my shelf (and I love the fact it’s only 86 minutes long).


  1. I would be interested in what you think about it. There is a scene when JR goes to the country side with his friends and the dialogue between them climbing the mountain made me laugh. There are some very poignant moments in the movie which really touched me. I often don't care about whether the boy gets the girl in the end of a film, but in this story I found myself really wanting them to make it work. It was interesting to watch the extras about the making of, and how a rather gratuitous sex montage was included to help with its distribution.
