Description: Unlike any another opera, the so-called Beggar's Opera is not just one composition, but a lineage of adapted compositions, beginning with the original hugely successful 1728 political satire written by Englishman John Gay. Composers and writers have penned variations on it ever since. The most popular of these was A Threepenny Opera by Bertholt Brecht and Kurt Weill. Some things these compositions share in common is their setting among the terrible and criminal classes, and the roguish hero Macheath. This production is based on an adaptation of Gay's original by Vaclav Havel the freedom-fighter, writer and philosopher who became the first (and only) president of the united post-communist country of Czechoslovakia, and it retains many traces of its theatrical origins. Movie reviewers were not too tolerant of what they named "slavish adherence" to the noted Czech writer's scene production, but theater, philosophy and history buffs may feel otherwise.

This movie doesn't really have any story to speak of. Basically it is an episodic comedy-drama, set in Fresh York in the late 60s, revolving around three mates as they test to avoid being drafted into the Units and sent to Vietnam, while experiencing different elements of the late 1960s counterculture.The movie uses a a style very reminiscent of the French "Nouvelle Vague" films, such as hand-held cameras, on-screen captions commenting on the action and speeded-up film.The movie is probably most well-known today for marking an early appearance by Robert De Niro (here aged 24) as voyeuristic amateur film-maker Jon Rubin, and for being an early movie from director Brian De Palma.The movie is, luckily, worth watching for much more than this though. It is an interesting snapshot of it's times and, although very dated, it is often quite funny. The main trouble is that the movie hasn't aged very well and there's no structure to it, many episodes by far outstay their welcome.
Of all of the Brian De Palma's movies I had seen their had never been a comedy. His movies are usually dramatic, scary or have a statement to say. About the closest he ever came to a comedy was Bonfire of the Vanities and we all know how that turned out. But going over his extensive body of work I found an old jewel by this man, and that jewel is Greetins. I admit this being cute much his first movie I could have came across it much sooner, but it was difficult to search and took me about three years to uncover. When I got it and watched I never expected to laugh, I just thought it would be other statement about the time it was made in like most of De Palma's movies and that would have been OK, as I like almost all of his movies, but this was a treat. From the very first frame until the last I was in a fit of laughter and that is a large accomplishment for a movie that is forty-years old. I have never laughed at a film from the 60's the method I did this one. When the first actor walks into the African American bar and picks a war so he can receive beat up and place out of the units was magnificent. They only comedies of that time that still keep up for me are The Andy Griffith Show, I love Lucy and another case comedies but never a film. The rest of the film is cool because it follows three guy who are trying to receive out of the draft and are heavily involved with various parts of the 60's counter culture. Robert De Niro, is a voyeur and obsessed with art I feel he is probably the hero that most resembles Brian De Palma, the hero almost is De Palma. One of the another guys is obsessed with the Kennedy assassination and is trying to search out the cover up, he is also involved in the hippie movement. The third guy is just a typical normal guy thrown in with these loons and is trying to stay out of the war. He goes as far to as to act gay and be like a militant. De Niro though rises as the star of the movie and outshines each one else, I like him better in this then anything else he has ever done. I love when he is forced to go to Vietnam and instead of shooting a V.C woman he has her pose for a news camera and tries to create a voyeur porn. It was hilarious. Brian De Palma himself makes a brief cameo in this as a boy on the steps of the draft building who De Niro does a funny rant too. Watch this film and see how De Palma grew to become the master he is. I will tell that this film is not for everyone as it is a tiny racist and sexiest but if you take it in the context that it was made then you can see they true roots of it's comedy.
Damn amusing comedy largely centered around conversational humour. Winner script writing with some of the most amusing scenes you'll ever see. It is unfortunate that this movie is so under-rated (and more often not rated at all) as it is a special look at a group of characters, so perfectly defined by the nice cast in their early years, who come up with some delightfully idiotic concepts and live out these concepts with such confidence it is really quite disturbing. John Rubin is of course the greatest character, and seeing Robert De Niro perform his "Cancerous elements" stage is easy one of the best scenes ever captured on celluloid. Most worthy of a sequel, which by possibility is almost as nice as its predecessor. Highly recommended.
