Once-Controversial Classic

Slapped with an 'X' rating upon it's release in 1969, "Midnight Cowboy" is neither as shocking or boundary-pushing as is once was. That said, it still holds up as a film and as a character study of men with lives verging on desperation.

None-too-bright Texan Joe Buck (Jon Voight) leaves his small-town home, fancying himself a life as a gigolo, and heads to New York City. After bei... read more

To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, even though it was released in 1969, in my opinion, it actually belongs to the great wave of amazingly inspired US movies from the 70’s such as ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Dog Day Afternoon’, ‘The French Connection’, ‘Chinatown’, ‘The Conversation’, ‘The Godfather’ ... read more

Ever watched a movie and gone “If I could yank that part out of the film and change this around it would make it so much better?” Cause Midnight Cowboy is that movie for me.

Texas greenhorn Joe Buck (John Voight) arrives in New York for the first time. Preening himself as a real 'hustler', he finds that he is the one getting 'hustled' until he teams up with a down-and-out but resilient outcast named Ratso Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman). The initial 'country cousin meets city cousin' relationship deepens. In their efforts to bilk a hostile world rebuffing them at every turn, this unlikely pair progress from partners in shady business to comrades. Each has found his first real friend.
