Dallas Buyers Club – Review


In a sea of Golden Globe and Oscar praise, Dallas Buyers Club really lives up the the hype as a true great of modern cinema. The well-written and appropriately balanced script explores the difficult character arc of the protagonist and those around him.

McConaughey gives a layered and utterly compelling performance, which does not falter once during the two-hour picture. Leto’s turn as a transgender HIV sufferer explores a depth of character and emotion which cannot be ignored.

With support from Jennifer Garner in a well played and at points unexpectedly affecting role, the performances alone are enough to make this an instant classic.

TL;DR: An emotionally staggering and wonderfully poignant story, with great direction and immaculate performances. By far one of the worthiest films of the season.

Rating: 5/5
