Dallas Buyers Club [DVD]
Region 1 USA/CA (
Matthew McConaughey headlines director Jean-Marc Valle's biographical drama centering on the story of Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who was diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1986, and who subsequently devoted his life to providing fellow HIV patients with non-FDA-approved drugs and supplements during an era when doctors were still struggling to understand the devastating disease. Defying his surprise death sentence, Woodroof set out to procure any and all non-toxic alternative HIV treatments available, and established a "buyers club" to provide the treatments to others afflicted with the disease. But that mission quickly made him a target for both the U.S. medical establishment and the pharmaceutical industry, both of which resented his defiance of government sanctions, and joined forces to shut down his operation by any means necessary.
Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, Jennifer Garner, Dallas Roberts, Steve Zahn
"[A] riveting and surprisingly relatable true story..."
"[M]arked by unexpected humor and roughneck rebellion as well as heart-wrenching humanity....A rough, raw, ragged and exhilarating ride."
Los Angeles Times
"McConaughey proves he has evolved from a handsome lightweight to one of the most talented, risk-taking actors in Hollywood."
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "McConaughey makes sure we feel his tenacity and triumphs in the treatment of AIDS. His explosive, unerring portrayal defines what makes an actor great, blazing commitment to a character and the range to make every nuance felt."
"[U]ndeniably affecting...[The story] allows McConaughey to turn his character into an empathetic figure -- one whose prejudice fades as his fighting spirit intensifies..."
"[T]hanks to McConaughey's and Leto's fearless performances as two terminally ill men going to whatever lengths it takes...DALLAS BUYERS CLUB achieves a sort of grace." -- Grade: B
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Once we get past McConaugheys stunning transformation, were transfixed by a performance that reminds us of why this guy became a movie star in the first place..."
"Providing the sweet to McConaugheys salt, Leto brings a disarming gentleness to Rayon....Both actors are magnificent..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "Matthew McConaughey is currently the most exciting acting talent at work in movies."
"It is the credit of director Jean-Marc Valle -- and the scriptwriters Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack -- that at no point does DALLAS BUYERS CLUB drift into the saccharine."
