    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.

    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…

    These are the kind of movies where my heart beats for. An immense study of the characters with Jon Voigt as Joe Buck & Dustin Hoffman as Ratso. The setting of the story is the end of the sixties at a moment where everything was changing and the influence of the wars were still there. I also love the way it still plays in these times but the most fascinating thing is that this movie kicks Brokeback Mountain to a much…

    I honestly felt bored watching this film. I didn't feel engaged in it.
