Overview

Midnight Cowboy

John Schlesinger's 1969 Best Picture winner Midnight Cowboy comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen image preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame 1.33:1 presentation. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Supplemental materials include theatrical trailers. This disc has good picture quality and very good sound quality, but considering its status as an Oscar winner, one would be right to wish for more background information.

I have always found this movie riveting, not squalid for squalid's sake... I didn't find the reality of it sickening, as maybe others might have. The acting drew you right in... you didn't find yourself checking your watch, as everything fit together so well. This will always be a gem of a movie from my point of view!

A movie plenty of the images in the style of the decade of 1960¿s as the psychedelic party, but over all with an excessive taste for squalid scenes that not ever are fully justified, as the terrible ominous meal of Jon Voigth at the same table with a woman, a child we suppose at first to be his son, and a mouse she finally shows, suggestive of we don¿t dare what, and that makes viewing the film almost insufferable. These situations are transcended by a general high quality but as it were, today this film is some delayed.
