GREETINGS and HI, MOM!

GREETINGS

(1968, Brian De Palma) ...begins that letter from the draft board, while Jonathan Warden looks for love, “Peep Artist” Robert De Niro picks his window, and JFK conspiracy nut Gerrit Graham plots bullet trajectories on his nude sleeping girlfriend. Plotlessly hilarious Vietnam-era comedy. Approx. 88 min. 35mm.
1:00, 4:40, 8:20

"It's all served up with good humor, self-indulgence, a touch of wit, and once in a while a fine satirical relish."
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

 

“Goes back to the roots… rediscovers the basic elements of movie comedy. Doing things they thought were funny, taking their camera out to the streets of New York, making things up as they went along, Brian de Palma and his friends made a comedy. Just like Mack Sennett used to do.”
– Roger Ebert

GREETINGS and HI, MOM!

HI, MOM!

(1970, Brian De Palma) In laid-back Greetings follow-up, Vietnam vet Robert De Niro chases Jennifer Salt, makes stag movies, bombs buildings — and, dressed as a cop, ushers in patrons for a hilarious/terrifying off-Broadway performance piece, “Be Black Baby.” Approx. 87 min. 35mm.
2:50, 6:30

 

"An exuberant grab bag of diabolical whimsy that blends radical politics, sexual freedom, racial tension, and emotional hangups with the director's own catalogue of artistic references, from Hitchcock and the French New Wave to cinéma vérité and avant-garde theatre–and adds a freewheeling inventiveness and an obstreperous satire all his own."
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
