The other day I watched a movie from 1969 titled "Midnight Cowboy". It was pretty cool. Theres a party scene that is pretty trippy with drug use and psychodelic music. I wasnt too sure about that but I guess thats how it was back then. Dustin Hoffman was PHENOMENAL! I've always had a small crush on him even though hes old as dirt. (I have a thing for short jewish men.Ugh, who am I kidding? I have a thing for ALL men who are attractive.) The real star of the movie is Jon Voight who was a hottie back in the day. You can definately see Angelina Jolie in him! (Shes his daughter.) He did an awesome job playing the role of a dimwitted "hustler" from Texas who takes a bus to New York. Once in NY his character Joe Buck sticks out like a sore thumb. Hoffmans character, Rico Rizzo is that of an ill-fated, down-on-his-luck petty thief. Soon after arriving in the "Big Apple", Buck meets Rizzo. Although, theres tension at first, they become friends soon afterwards. The final scene is heartwrenching. Although, its kindve sad I LOVED IT! I loved the dark, gritty edge it had to it. That and the superb acting made this a fantastic film. I rented it a week before the damn special edition was released to dvd! WTF. That makes me mad. But alas, I am going to buy it if I ever get any money =)
I recommend everyone sees this. Oh, by-the-way it won the Best Picture Oscar for 1969. The actors were also nominated for their roles.
