    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. 5 years 8 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. 5 years 11 months ago
