We can identify with them without false sentimentality and it is impossible not to do so.

[A] tawdry, strident yet deeply affecting tale.

Strip away everything else and it's the performances that make Midnight Cowboy what it is.

I cannot recall a more marvelous pair of acting performances in any one film.

"Midnight Cowboy" is an exquisite time capsule. The film is filled with dark social and political commentary. Only through his problematic friendship with Ratzo can Buck reclaim his humanity.

Midnight Cowboy's peep-show vision of Manhattan lowlife may no longer be shocking, but what is shocking, in 1994, is to see a major studio film linger this lovingly on characters who have nothing to offer the audience but their own lost souls.

Superb performances and a compelling script have made this film a strange mix of Oscar-winner and Cult Classic.

In this film the scenery is lovely and only the human race is vile.

The movie is locked into a sixties stylistic approach that can feel dated, but Hoffman's performance can prevent one from ever tiring of the film.

January 30, 2008
Jon Fortgang

An impressive and enduring evocation of time and place, this is a moving low-life drama built around Oscar-winning writing and performances.

Talented Englishman Schlesinger had an unerring eye for capturing the grimy reality of New York, even if his directorial style is more jittery than is really necessary.

It only takes a movie like Midnight Cowboy to point out the limitations of a rating system: How can a measly four stars convey the magnificence of this acknowledged classic?

Schlesinger's frenzied style and visual pyrotechnics (New Wave influence) are less impressive than the characters and the central friendship between Joe Buck and Ratso, splendidly played by Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman.
