Midnight Cowboy (1969)

Midnight Cowboy (33:43)

Midnight Cowboy

A small-time cartoonish cowboy hits the big time and struggles to find his dimwitted footing. This portrait of NYC in the late ‘60s is rough and grimy. At least stars Jon Voight & Dustin Hoffman get to share a bromance before that word even existed. Do we think this Oscar-winner, that’s riddled with fantasies & flashbacks, holds up? G’head and find out!
