Midnight Cowboy 

2/4 stars

I'm going to keep this short and sweet...I hope. I did not really care for this film. Quite frankly I don't know why it won Best Picture at the Oscars and I don't know why it's considered as great as it is. The acting is great, especially Hoffman. I'm not a huge Jon Voight fan, but he was good. Maybe if I lived in New York, I would "get it." Maybe if I was alive in '69 or had read the book, I would "get it." But since neither of those things have happened, I don't get it!

Was this a thing? Did people really move to New York to be gigolos? And, this was pre-AIDS, but Ratso sure acted like he was dying of it. I just don't get it, my rating would've been lower had the acting not been top-notch.
