Plot Outline:

In 1986, Texas electrician Ron Woodroof was diagnosed as HIV positive and found it nearly impossible dealing with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies in finding proper treatment. Seeing no other alternative, he came up with his own solution, and helped many HIV-positive people like him in the process. -- Chris Kavan

This is an "actors' movie." The acting was phenomenal! Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto absolutely deserve their Oscars. However, despite the heavy lifting that those two, and really the whole cast do, I felt like this could've been better. That's on the screenwriter and the director. It's not a bad movie, in fact it's really good, but it just felt like something was missing. In some spots, I felt like the movie went by too fast, in others, I felt like it just dragged on. However, I would recommend this film to anyone.

Average film about finding connections after a life changing transformation. It is supposedly about modern enlightenment and how although we are divided, we can all come together. The main character is a chauvinistic redneck who learns to dispel his negative bigotry about other's sexual preferences and unite them in finding a cure which has been withheld by the inefficient FDA.

Matthew McConaughey weight loss in the movie was shocking.Dallas Buyers Club. I used to hate Matthew McConaughey because of his old crappy movie but now He is the new Johnny Depp, the acting and the directing was brilliant and I have no nick picks or any other Bad things to say I think the movie works well with the script and the cast. and this movie will get a 4/4 star's "Great movie go see it now".

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...
