If for nothing else, Greetings would be memorable as the second feature-length directorial effort of Brian DePalma (his first, 1966's The Wedding Party, was released shortly afterward). A satire of late-1960s manners and mores, the film… More

Almost too relevant for its own good, this is a hauntingly realistic interpretation of life in the 60s. It consists of draft dodging techniques, clues to the… More

The objectives of this peculiar film are clouded by its microscopic budget, and as a result it drags even at the short length of 88 minutes. The dialogue… More

A quirky early film for De Niro, where it doesn?t really give his acting skills chance to shine through and yet, it is strangely intriguing. It feels like the… More
