Watch the movie Midnight Cowboy (rated R) and discuss controversial Oscar-nominated films with critics Hope Madden and George Wolf.
Hope Madden and George Wolf, film critics for MaddWolf.com and ABC6/Fox28’s Good Day Columbus, are hosting a three-film series at the UAPL just in time for Oscar season. This week, MaddWolf will screen the 1969 classic Midnight Cowboy, directed by John Schlesinger. Set in the gritty streets of New York City in the 1960s, the film follows the unlikely friendship between a young, naive Texan and an opportunistic con man. They will also discuss other Oscar-nominated films that were deemed controversial for their time, such as A Clockwork Orange (1971), Last Tango in Paris (1972), and Blue Valentine (2010).
The film Midnight Cowboy is rated R, and the topic for this event is intended for a mature audience.
This event is part of a 3-part film series:
January 29, 2023 - Spielberg at the Oscars
