Midnight Cowboy ★★★★★

Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind.

Lost dreams, lost innocence, lost hope. It's bleak and sad but there are moments of generosity and excitement too, there isn't just one side to this story. At one point there is a psychedelic party that captures some of the 60s so well. The editing in this is bizzare but it works every single time. And of course we have Harry Nilssons seemingly melodic upbeat song "Everybody's Talkin", but the lyrics hang over our characters heads at all times, fitting each mood perfectly. The performances are great, Jon Voights innocence is heartbreaking and Dustin Hoffmann never fails to impress me. A new favorite for me!
