Losing your direction sometimes is an attitude towards life.
The psychological and fantasy stuff doesn't work, and Hoffman is never convincing.
"John Wayne! You wanna tell me he's a fag? I like the way I look. It makes me feel good. It does."
Keyser Söze Graduated. and winter is coming.
I seem to be drawn to the idea of people "drawn together by mutual lonliness." Scenes of horrific squalor and despair often make for compelling drama and bleak humor, and there's plenty of it here. Amazing acting by both Voight and Hoffman, and a perfectly written story that keeps moving you forward even though you know it can only come to a tragic end. Amazing.
''I'm walking here! I'm walking here!''
splendid! A really good movie. heartbreaking too.
One of my favourite movies ever. Absolutely amazing.
Great movie. Jon Voight excellent work; Dustin H. just a bit too much Dustin H.
Can't believe it's taken me this long to see this movie. I'm still thinking about it. Dustin Hoffman's best performance by a long shot. Really impressed with how gutsy this movie was for it's time..especially an American movie.
Never really worked at all for me. I normally don't use "dated" as a derisive term, but it's tempting to do so here. Came in expecting to really like this, it just didn't happen.
Character study of 1960's New York City and of two men of very different backgrounds.Surviving in the cruel world of a big city,having nothing and needing a friend. A brilliant cast.
I wanted to crash that psychedelic party so bad.
A witty and provocative story of the most unlikely friendship.
It's a masterpiece in American cinema. One of the defining pieces of film that captures a time and era and mood from a specific decade in the country's history. From the film's internal material itself to its very daring existance... it's pinnacle.
One of the finest examples of great american cinema
I forgot all about it before the end credits were even finished. It's a nothing kind of movie.
Hoffman's character really reminded me of his character in Rain Man. It's such a sad movie, I think you need to be in a certain mood to really be into it, even with all its humour.
Posting this only to block the spoiler 4 posts down.
I took a long time to watch this, what I don't usually do to "classics" - fortunately or unfortunately, I've reached the right time and age to understand it.
One of the saddest movies I've ever seen.
I liked it a lot but I would have liked it even more if Rizzo hadn't died.
Why do I love this film? John Voight as the naive 'cowboy' and Dustin Hoffman as the loveable and despicable 'Ratso' go on a journey to Eutopia where Voight's character tries to save Ratso. Sadly this naive notion is never realised.
Voight looks like Jolie in here.
Cowboy seems like my friend Jose Curtazor! :P
