Midnight Cowboy (1969) dir. John Schlesinger

"'Midnight Cowboy' comes heartbreakingly close to being the movie we want it to be. The performances have a flat, painful accuracy. The world of Times Square, a world of people without hope and esteem, seems terribly real. Here is America's underbelly and it even smells that way." (Roger Ebert)

But is it boring? Yes.
