    Jon Voight no es un "hustler", después de todo, pero sí es un gran actor en esta triste mirada de la vida pobre en el país más "poderoso" del mundo. Su colaboración con un Dustin Hoffman fantástico pasó a la historia del cine, y sus interpretaciones juntos son el deleite de la película, mucho más que la película misma como un todo.

    Based on James Leo Herlihy's novel, Midnight Cowboy is an American drama that made a lot more sense when it was released than what it makes now, but John Schlesinger's film is such a powerful tale of disillusionment in relation to the 'reality of life' that, no matter what, it will never be forgotten.

    John Voight stars as Joe Buck, a naive and seductive cowboy from Texas who is convinced he is the salvation of many single women who are…

    What a beautiful mutant of a film! Quite incredible that MIDNIGHT COWBOY ever got made, thank the cinema gods! I'd like to quickly talk about Jon Voight now.

    I've never been a fan of Jon Voight as an actor, and his performance in MIDNIGHT COWBOY is no exception. It's not bad per se, I mean he was nominated for an Oscar. It's just that every time I see him on screen in a movie I always see Jon Voight, movie…

    A re-watch for screenwriting class. Not a personal fav but a classic nonetheless. Nice going Waldo.

    Overall, I didn't completely like watching Midnight Cowboy, but I like having watched it, if that makes any sense. I'm realizing that I have a lot of trouble completely enjoying movies from the New Hollywood era like Bonnie and Clyde and Easy Rider. The issues these movies stir up, the performances, the use of music I really appreciate. I think I have the most trouble with the production and editing and the abruptness of the endings. Someone's always got to…

    Hoffman is genius in this. Amazing that he went from the Graduate to this role. So much for your wholesome Hollywood leading man. That being said this film really didn't grab me like I thought it would. Good, just not great in my eyes.

    What a beautiful story. Praise the holy lord of Hoffman for Dustin's existence.

    wow. here's a movie that BEGINS with the DREAM of being a PROSTITUTE. the step-by-step unravelling and disintegration of that dream is strangely thrilling, and of course, horrifically sad. by the end it's difficult not to look at all the hopeless faces in toronto and think about how they got there and the wonderful people trapped beneath their circumstances. a little obvious i suppose, but important to remember. midnight cowboy is for that.

    i was very impressed by voight's overwhelming…
