I don't know how this movie got on my list. I found it hard to watch and didn't see it through to the end
This is a film worth studying. Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight are excellent actors. From characters you want nothing to do with till the end where you feel the loss, it's a great film.
Wearing well so still worth watching.
Terrific perfomances by John Voight and Dustin Hoffman - classic story of one person's dreams being quashed by big city reality...
I thought that this was a great movie when it was released all those years ago, but, like me, it is showing its age. But still worth a look.
Much enjoyment from viewing two of possibly the first appearances of both Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight.
Still stands up well ,even in todays social climate.
Classic Hoffman performance, Voight great too as naive young man arriving in New York.
A carefully constructed, gritty slice of life that gives a fascinating look into life, and filmmaking, in an era that's not long past. Characters that have since become stereotypes clash in a way, and at a pace, that provide both food and time for thought - but this is where it all came from. Have we since lost all the innocence, but kept all the alienantion?
Incredible story of innocence lost, friendship and gritty survival. Highly recommend.
I saw this film on first release, but have not seen it since. Its class hit me on
this second viewing. It's as if all of sleazy / cutting edge of New York was
folded in together, so we had these modern young hoboes intersecting with
Andy Warhol's world of art and drugs. Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman gave
marvellous performances. The lost little cowboy who finishes up as a male
prostitute, and sick Rizzo, who hustles his way through, wins the loving
friendship of Voight, and dies in his arms as his dream of renewal in Florida
comes true. Tremendous. The music is very poignant. It's a sweet, tragic love
Very good but very sad. A classic.
Another fine movie from the 70's with excellent performances by Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman (even though Hoffman's character of Ratso is annoying)
Bit dated now but still a fine movie.
I could only watch it for 20 minutes. The characters were annoying and the script was stupid.
Great performances from Voight and Hoffman. Film stands up well after over 30 years.
