    A truly outstanding and provocative film about a Texan hustler and a crippled con-man who work together to survive the seedy area of New York City as it's one of the key films of New Hollywood and American cinema.

    I can understand criticisms of the film, and there are parts that don't seem to work- but Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman carry it, and there's a strong emotional center that pulls the film, which never goes away. We know what they want, why they want it, and what will happen if they don't get it, despite many details being spare. We get glimpses and hints of their past traumas, but we never understand it any better than they do. There's a beauty, a slowness to this film that never leaves it, from beginning to end.

    Amazing film.

    The script isn't necessarily strong, but the things done here and how it all plays out are perfect. Tragic and beautiful at times, mostly tragic. But I think it ends on a good note in a way. Joe Buck is a completely different character by the film's end. He doesn't have all the answers, but he is wiser to the world and himself. Love how it begins and ends with a bus sequence.

    Dustin Hoffman's best performance.

    Has some lapses in its energy and pacing (though Voight and Hoffman have great chemistry together, several of their scenes feel representative of the film's lapses into grimness for grimness' sake), but the high points, which almost resemble avant-garde and experimental films, are remarkable, and well worth seeing the film for. Next to The French Connection, Midnight Cowboy might be the most unorthodox Best Picture winner in Oscar history.

    It's been a while since I've seen this and even back then, I liked it. It's a gritty one led by two great characters in search of trying to make a successful life for themselves. Hoffman is truly the bigger of the two in this.

    A great script that flows really well. I thought Dustin Hoffman was amazing in this. Like, his performance was a major acting achievement.

    1969's Midnight Cowboy Is One Of My Favorite Films, I Like It Because Dustin Hoffman Turned 75 Years Old In 2012 And Jon Voight Turned 75 Years Old Last Year In 2013.

    Sure it's depressing. But damn if it isn't one of the best acted, saddest films and most poignant films I've seen about life in the city since I first saw Taxi Driver. Essential viewing.
