Synopsis:
Dustin Hoffman gives an unforgettable performance as Ratso Rizzo, a scrounging, sleazy small-time con man with big dreams. Jon Voight is magnificent as Joe Buck, the good-looking, naively charming Texan 'cowboy' who is convinced that he is the salvation of many lonely, love starved New York Women. These two characters are drawn together in this powerful and compassionate film.

Sublime! - Midnight Cowboy review by JK

Spoiler Alert
21/12/2019

This is possibly the saddest film I have ever seen; so underplayed and poignant. Both John Voight and Dustin Hoffman are superb and could not be bettered - so please, don't try a remake with any of today's actors.

Still a Classic - Midnight Cowboy review by JP

Spoiler Alert
29/05/2018

I thought it might have shown its age, but It's stood up well to passing time. It's still a moving portrayal of an unlikely friendship, loneliness in the big city and the thin dividing line between life and death. It affected me as much 50 years later as it did when I first saw it.
