Plot

Vietnam vet John Rubin returns to New York and rents a rundown flat in Greenwhich Village. It is in this flat that he begins to film, 'Peeping Tom' style, the people in the apartment across the street. His obsession with making films leads him to fall in with a radical 'Black Power' group, which in turn leads him to carry out a bizarre act of urban terrorism!
 

Comments

Yo Mom! You Talkin' To Me?, 5 June 2003 Author: Daniel Vargas (BritishGangsterTimRoth) from Sâ,o Paulo, Brazil Lurking beneath the humor of director Brian De Palma's irreverent breakthrough comedy is the politically charged suggestion that, in an already hyped-up environment, Vietnam vets may not be so easily re-assimilated to the home front. The main character of Rubin is something of a precursor to star Robert De Niro's ultra-violent, ultra-alienated Travis Bickle in Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver"(1976). Independently producted , and shot for very little money on location in the Village, the film has a loose narrative structure and apt dowtown details that give it a keen feel for the counterculture milieu on which it comments. More a cult favorite than a mainstream success, the film spotlights De Palma's visual smarts and interest in media voyeurism, and De Niro's off-Kilter Rubin, retrospectively making "Hi, Mom!" a clever forerunner of the subquent '70s work of both men.The movie includes a soberb soundtrack focusing all socials problems and making fun of them.
