Midnight Cowboy

I never seen Midnight Cowboy and will admit I was a little hesitant at first since older movies tend not to keep my attention well.  But I thought the movie was actually pretty good.  The story of the cowboy and the handicapped hustler was great.  Dustin Hoffman played the role very well and I couldn't imagined it played any other way.  The only thing that bothered me was the "chaoticness" of the flashbacks.  While they were needed to get some insight on Joe Buck, they could have been played out better in my opinion.

  1. That type of "flashback" editing was very common at that time. I agree with you in that it sometimes seems a bit forced today.
