An example of impressive acting

I swear it, Ray, God sure was dressin' the wrong doll when he blessed you with a set of balls.

I admit. Everyone will probably repeat this infinitely times. The acting of Matthew McConaughey is irrefutable top level. I'll do it just one more time ... the acting of Matthew McConaughey is top level ! After I saw him in "The Lincoln Lawyer " where he plays a lawyer who works from out of his Lincoln, there was a sign of sheer acting talent in the movie "Mud". "Mud" isn't an average movie. You like it or you hate it. But it it does show that he isn't an ordinary actor. The metamorphosis in "Dallas Buyers Club" is even more spectacular. Physically it must have been quite a sacrifice in order to lose that much weight. The image of him lying in the hospi...

White Trash

Jean-Marc Vallee verfilmt die wahre Geschichte von Ron Woodroof, der als Aidspatient in den 80er Jahren einen Handel mit illegalen Medikamenten aufzog. Oft liest man, wie sich Matthew McConaughey in den letzten Jahren zum Charakter-Darsteller gemausert hat und dabei werden seine frühen Filme gern übersehen! In Dallas Buyers Club verschwindet er einfach gänzlich hinter seiner Rolle. Sein Ron Woodroof ist der Inbegriif von White Trash, der für Schwule und Aidsopfer nur Verachtung übrig hat. Dann erfährt der Texaner, der sich im Trailerpark mit allen möglichen Frauen vergnügte, dass er nicht nur HIV positiv ist, sondern bereits an Aids erkrankt. Illegal beschafft er für sich Medikamente, die in den USA noch nicht zugelassen wurden. Gemeinsam mit einem Transsexuellen (Jared ­Leto) gründet er ...

"Dallas Buyer's Club" by Yojimbo

A hard drinking, womanising, homophobic Texan is diagnosed with HIV in the 1980s and goes on to champion alternative treatments in the face of strong opposition from the establishment. Once again Matthew McCaunaghey shows his true mettle with yet another great performance as the initially obnoxious red neck who learns tolerance and acceptance when confronted with the object of his derision; in this case AIDS victims and homosexuals in general. It makes for an engaging tragi-comic true life story that exposes the corruption of the FDA's practice of banning all alternative treatments, despite the fact that the medication they approved was highly toxic and showed questionable results, because of the financial incentives of the big pharmaceutical companies. Jean Marc Vallee shows an effective...

Review: Dallas Buyers Club

Damn! Matthew McConaughey is on a fucking roll. Ghost of Girlfriend's Past, back in 2009, must have been a bump to his head: "Hello! Are you in there!? You're better than this, dude!" So he is, and films he's made since than including Mud, Bernie, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Dallas Buyers Club certainly prove it. I also hear he's very good in the show True Detective. I haven't seen it yet but I plan to watch it.

Dallas Buyers Club is a slow film, slightly flawed and occasionally poorly constructed, but it's consistently compelling due to the two lead performances delivered by Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. This whole film, which deals with fairly disturbing and dense subject matter, rests entirely on McConaughey's shoulders, and he nails it, bringing dark and provocative work with oc...

First class acting first class movie

Really good movie with some great acting Matthew McConaughey just gets better and better as he gets older. he is hard to recognize in this role with the weight loss he done for the role. he really looked awful in many scenes with first class acting all the way.
Based on the true story. mathhew plays a straight guy dying of aids who has been given 30 days to live. rather than sit in a corner and die. he seeks out medicine to help and ends up becoming a drug dealer selling the medicine to those who need it as the powers that be wont supply it. its the story of his battle with them and all he has to go through to fight the system as well as stay alive. The friendship he builds with the cross dresser is a big highlight of the movie. This movie shows the dark side of life the things most of ...

And the Oscar goes to Jared Leto, or it better...

Occasional pacing issues aside, Dallas Buyers Club has a perfect mix of humor and heart bursting emotional. McConaughey is ferociously good in probably his best performance ever, but it is Jared Leto who truly elevates the film to a completely different level. He steals every scene he's in in one of the greatest supporting performances I've ever seen. He's up there with Heath Ledger as The Joker, just completely transcendent and astonishing. Of course, tears were shed by the bucket loads, but fortunately cliches were few and far between and everything feels natural and unforced. It all adds up to being one of the best films of the year and a showcase of truly outstanding performances from everyone involved. A great story very wellt old.
