Dallas Buyers Club 
"Dallas Buyer's Club" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

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 restraint in the direction and it features a solid supporting cast, including Oscar winning Jared Leto as his transsexual business partner, but it's McConaughey's show all the way. Which leads one to wonder...Sahara? Failure To Launch? For the love of God, WHY??
