“At 27, De Palma is probably the most important director today . . . Greetings is the most important American movie of the last few years” —Columbia Daily Spectator, April 28, 1969. Greetings was the film that first compelled people to start calling Brian De Palma the “American Godard,” a spontaneous, fresh, wildly irreverent take on contemporary culture starring Robert De Niro as one of a trio of rule-flouting nonconformists preoccupied with the Kennedy assassination, computer dating, Vietnam, and voyeuristic “peep art.” The then 27-year-old filmmaker won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival for this breakout—initially rated X!
