Hi, Mom!

Movie Summary

Director:
Brian De Palma
Released:
1970
Rating:
R
Hi, Mom! Is the cult 1970 comedy, from fledgling superstar suspense director Brian De Palma (Carrie, The Untouchables, Scarface, Dressed to Kill). Jon Rubin (Robert De Niro) is a Vietnam vet looking to find his place in America. He gets the idea of making porno films with a voyeuristic quality, filming the residents of a neighboring apartment building from his window. To get quicker results, he even seduces one woman and tries to perform for the camera, set on a timer. One of the neighbors is a bearded young white fellow whose liberal politics are in overdrive. He's producing a play called 'Be Black, Baby'. The flyers promoting the show feature photos he's taken of white folks painted black. Rubin auditions for a role in the play, in which the white spectators are humiliated by black performers. Apparently, he thinks that covering himself in black paint will immediately enable him to completely understand the plight of African Americans. And perhaps help purge whatever latent racism he has within.moreless
