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

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".

'Dallas Buyers Club' presents two of the best performances of the year. McConaughey gives his single best acting effort and Leto disappears into another unrecognizable supporting role. Both are mesmerizing. The rest of the film is solid. It's a raw representation of a true tale that instills hopefulness when faced with a terrible situation. There is a strong feeling of want for Woodroof to fight the system and his not-so-legal accomplishment is still commendable for the fact that it's done for just reasons of equality.

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.
