Midnight Cowboy

Joe Buck is a wide-eyed hustler from Texas hoping to score big with wealthy New York City women; he finds a companion in Enrico “Ratso” Rizzo, an ailing swindler with a bum leg and a quixotic fantasy of escaping to Florida.

Movie Reviews:

  • Potential Kermode: **”I’m walking here! I’m walking here!” Shuffling, perhaps.**

    One can always count on Hoffman and his ability to absorb the character he is portraying with such ease. He has a knack at portraying that deep, bronchial coughing schtick. When watching, I had to wear a surgical mask – just in case.

    Voight, as usual, is magnificent as the innocent amongst the scum. Watching this wide eyed lone ranger slowly losing the tassels from his jacket is a deeply moving experience.

    A word of warning, you may want to use antibacterial wipes on your tv screen after watching Hoffman here. One cannot be too careful.
