    This trailer is ruined by the modern voice over bs. And the overly dramatic film. Watch the original trailer.

    Shitty movie and a an even shittier soundtrack. If they used disco music, it would have been more authentic but they used some shitty ass rock music.

    I fucking love being a sodomite. We have the best night life as shown here in this film. You can see Al is gradually turning gay as he gets more involved in the gay scene; this is because all men have the bi gene and are naturally attracted to each other, and most will make love to another man, but just won't admit it. Being 100% is total freedom, as hanging out in these awesome clubs is a turn on sucking on a cock while all the other patrons watches. Or hanging out in the park at night cottaging is awesome, as also shown in the film - but the best is hanging around public toilets and making glory holes in the cubicles to fuck a strangers asshole ir suck on a cock, and vice versa -- awesome.

    Great Movie, one of the best performances of Al Pacino, and of course, great directing! .

    Supposedly black women getting HIV has a lot to do with closeted black men fucking other men and then going home and fucking them. Straight males are probably the least likely to catch it.

    "HIV are WAY LOWER if you're heterosexual." Bullshit, you go tell that to some "heterosexual" black women, who are contracting HIV at an alarming rate.

    Al Pacino is a thespian extraordinaire...his name garners respect along with some of Hollywood's elite, i.e. Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant and Marlon Brando to name a few. Epic roles in films such as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Devils Advocate and Godfather I, II, III. His credentials are impeccable.

    This looks promising indeed.

    Great movie, maybe it was too much for its time, but it’s a great thriller, no doubt.

    Here's a shocking thought...If you want to reduce your chance of getting aids DON'T SCREW EVERYTHING WITH A PULSE! Its not rocket science, dumbass.

    Schlesinger, who, like Finch's character, was both homosexual and Jewish, was criticized in some gay-lib precincts for the seediness of the homosexual content in "Midnight Cowboy," specifically the scene in which Jon Voight's hustler is serviced in a dark movie theater by the student played by Bob Balaban, and another in which Voight bashes a middle-aged suitor in a sexual encounter gone wrong." -- Peter Rainer, Bloomberg News

    The first murder scenes stayed with me. Very haunting.."You made me do that".
