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

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. 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.

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.
