Product Description

Amazon.ca

Daring. Provocative. Shocking. Compelling. Nearly thirty years after its original release, "Midnight Cowboy is still heartbreakingand timeless" (The New York Observer). This Academy Award® winner for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay also boasts Oscar®-nominated performances by Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight, neither of whom have "ever been better on screen than they are here" (Chicago Tribune).

When Joe Buck (Voight), a good-looking, naively charming Texas "cowboy" makes his way to the Big Apple to seek his fortune, the only wealth he finds is in the friendship of Ratso Rizzo (Hoffman), a scrounging, sleazy, small-time con man with big dreams. Living on the tattered fringe of society, these two outcasts develop an unlikely bond, one that transcends their broken dreams and get-rich-quick schemes and makes Midnight Cowboy "that rarest of things: [a film] every bit as moving now as it was when it was [first] released" (Premiere).

Product Description

Premier et seul film interdit aux moins de 18 ans aux États- Unis à avoir reçu l'Oscar du meilleur film, Macadam Cowboy a cependant un peu perdu de son caractère scandaleux. John Voight est formidable en Texan naïf décidé à faire fortune en vendant ses charmes à des vieilles dames esseulées. Peu doué comme gigolo, il échoue dans les pattes d'un escroc minable, Dustin Hoffman dans un numéro épatant. Le montage serré et le style semi-psychédélique de Schlesinger ont vieilli, tout comme sa vision cynique des personnages, à l'exception de ses héros. Le film ressemble à une fable triste sur l'amitié entre deux losers perdus dans la grande ville, avec une fin qu'aucun grand studio n'accepterait aujourd'hui. On pense à Des souris et des hommes, où les deux héros seraient Lenny. --Jim Emerson
