AFI #43 – Midnight Cowboy

Midnight CowboyMidnight Cowboy

1969

Directed by John Schlesinger

Netflix says… To earn cash as a freelance sex stud and work toward his dream of becoming a kept man, hayseed hustler Joe Buck heads to New York City, where an improbable friendship blossoms when he meets seedy con man Ratso Rizzo.

I’m gonna go ahead and say this one won’t make my personal top 100. Not that it was a horrible movie. Joe seems like a naive kind of guy and Ratso kind of preys on that at first. From there it gets a little depressing. I don’t think this will be a movie that I’ll watch repeatedly over the coming years. In fact, this may be the only time in my life that I watch it. And I’m okay with that.Midnight Cowboy - I'm Walking Here.gif
