Midnight Cowboy ★★★★★

I'm fascinated that just nine years earlier THE APARTMENT was the New York City Oscar darling and by the end of the decade we were living on the outskirts with the outcasts, struggling with the day to day hustle. I just appreciate that a film like this exists as a time capsule and remains as experimental today as it must have then. Joe Buck and Ratso are the unlikeliest of companions but there is so much truth and vulnerability revealed between them. Also, Bob Balaban sucks off Jon Voight in his first ever film credit, so I hold that dear.
