113 minutes — R, 35mm, John Schlesinger, United States, 1969
The only X-Rated film in cinema history ever to win a Best Picture Oscar is a dark tale of unlikely friendship between a country boy (Jon Voight) who dreams of being a great hustler and a sickly, streetwise con (Dustin Hoffman) who just wants people to notice where he’s walking. Essential viewing.
