a real masterpiece,
This review is from: Midnight Cowboy [DVD]  (DVD)
Midnight cowboy is a film that runs through a good range of emotions,its a film that is ultimately tragic,a film with good laughs,poignant,reflective,thrilling and is a coming of age drama as well.Its a film that was released in 1969,won an oscar and both dustin hoffman and jon voight were nominated for best oscar awards.
Jon Voight plays joe buck who has dreams of moving to new york and makinghis fortune but he is a naive country fellow,and he meets hoffman who plays ricco who represents the slime of society that lie in the underbelly of new york.
Eventually through a series of events these two become friends and undertake a series of plots to make themselves money but find out that nothing is easy regardless of whether you have nothing to lose.
The film is iconic and has a good soundtrack and this film is both spoofed and tributed in film in the years that followed.Its a film that gets better with repeated watches so if you want a film that stirs the emotions then this is one of the all time greats.
