SIMPLY AMAZING... GIVE IT RESPECT!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Midnight Cowboy [VHS] (1969) (VHS Tape)
Absolute class. From the crisp acting to the passionate directing John Schlesinger's moving adaptation of James Herlihy's bestseller is a movie that stuns and amuses to great extent. Dustin Hoffman is brilliant as a small time con man with big dreams of the Florida high life, and Jon Voight proves his acting talent as a Texan with dreams of his own, and as they wind their friendship through 'get rich quick' schemes and the sleazy side of the big apple, this film has emerged as a cult classic, with a top notch soundtrack, an unforgettable ending. And the all round pure heart that should be embodied into every film. It is an overlooked masterpiece and one of the best productions of all time.
