It's a shock to go back and watch "Midnight Cowboy" 45 years after its debut (on May 25, 1969) and see how raw and otherworldly it looks. After all, the X-rated Best Picture Oscar-winner has been so thoroughly assimilated into American pop culture that even kiddie entertainments like the Muppets have copied from it.

The tale of the unlikely friendship between naïve Texas gigolo Joe Buck (Jon Voight) and frail Bronx con man Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), "Midnight Cowboy" was initially considered so risqué that it's the only X-rated movie ever to win the Academy's top prize (though after it won, the ratings board reconsidered and gave the film an R).

Oscilloscope Cooks Up Deal for Wayne Wang’s ‘Soul of a Banquet’ Documentary

10 January 2014 11:11 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscilloscope Laboratories has come to the table for Wayne Wang’s “Soul of a Banquet,”  acquiring worldwide rights to the documentary while it is still in production.

Producers for the film, which will be released later this year,  are Wang, Richard Wong and Jonathan Bing. The film focuses on Cecilia Chiang, touted as introducing America to authentic Chinese food with the opening of her restaurant The Mandarin in 1961 in San Francisco.

“Banquet” includes interviews with Chang, Alice Waters and Ruth Reichl.

Wang’s credits include “Smoke,” “Maid in Manhattan” and “A Thousand Years of Good Prayers.”

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to bring Wayne’s deeply touching and wonderfully delicious portrait to audiences,” said Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub said, “It’s a late Christmas gift to O-Scope – and what better way for two Jewish boys to celebrate Christmas than with Chinese food?”
