Good price for this great movie

Dustin Hoffman and John Voight star in the groundbreaking movie that shattered major studio conventions by being the first mainstream Hollywood production to go out to theatres with an X certificate. A grim tale of New York city before it's zero tolerance make over in the 90s, Midnight Cowboy is the squalid story of a good looking hustler and his sickly sidekick. When Cowboy Buck arrives in the city he is hustled himself by the homeless Ratzo Rizzo, who convinces Buck to let him mange his career for a small fee. Rizzo disappears but Buck tracks the rapidly ailing thief down, feels sorry for him and moves into Ratzo's room in an abandoned building to look after him. The two talk about how their going to strike it rich in the big city but the urban hell that is their reality keeps battering them down...

A combination of great direction, a good script and just the right actors firing on all cylinders make Midnight Cowboy a classic of alternative Hollywood at a time when the young upstarts from the film schools were starting to take over from the old studio monopolies. Dark, definitely depressing in places but also witty and funny, it's a tremendous movie that deserves its place in cinema history.
