Lucky McKee’s new film, Old Man, is the latest in a career of character-driven horror favorites like May, The Woman, and All Cheerleaders Die. And in this episode, he’s sharing his personal resonance with Charlie, the main character in Scorsese’s Mean Streets (1973). In a powder keg of rough men always threatening to go off in a burst of violence, Charlie (played by Harvey Keitel) is a mediator who can’t quite explain why he feels compelled to vouch for certain friends.

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
