    Beautiful, but quite depressing movie about two guys trying to make their dreams come true. Great performances by Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman. Also a very interesting way of filming with flashbacks and hallucinations. 8 years 10 months ago

    I saw it as a movie about escapist dreams, people who hear stories about other places and go there, only to see the true side of the place they've heard about. Interestingly enough, it reminds me of another "Midnight" movie, "Midnight in Paris", where instead of places that are emphasized, it's times. 9 years 1 month ago

    Drivel, huh? I would hardly call it that... Yes, it is weird and depressing, but I would give credit where it's due - dialog and acting (especially from Hoffman) was top notch. 9 years 8 months ago
