Midnight Cowboy review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 04/29/13
Joe Buck (Jon Voight) goes to New York to be a hustler. He meets a cripple named Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman). Soundtrack was apt and endearing, which captivates attention to every poignant scene. Performances of the leads keeps you engaged, Voight with his innocent looking childlike eyes and Hoffman's scheming gestures coupled with an authentic looking limp and sickness. Screenplay was provocative with lines "A person's got to make a living." - Cass. "Well, we all have our off days." Towny. A film that tackles on survival, ambition, friendship, homosexuality, loneliness, bad past, transformation, and death. Midnight Cowboy is a dark, often funny, dramatic picture that touches on several sensitive issues, especially during it's time.
