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 aims its barbs at Lyndon B. Johnson, Vietnam, the draft, the counterculture, Greenwich Village and the John F. Kennedy assassination. Billed first, Robert DeNiro actually has a supporting role as a young longhair who tries to help his best pal (Jonathan Warden)

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Most of it is strained and unfunny, with some generous nudity for nudity's sake and a hip sprinkling of four-letter words.
What holds the film together is not its plot (there isn't one) but its attitude, its general instinct for what is funny in our society.
It's all served up with good humor, self-indulgence, a touch of wit, and once in a while a fine satirical relish.
This modest film by the young Brian De Palma, starring the young Robert De Niro, is one of the first features that dealt with Vietnam.
Brian De Palma's breezy, Godardian first feature distills the heady atmosphere of Greenwich Village in an era of countercultural experimentation and anti-war protest.
Greetings, and salutations to a career destined to be pockmarked by provocation.
What happened to a vivacious, talented director who could in 1968 co-write, direct and edit this movie for $40,000 yet 30 years later made Mission: Impossible?
