Dallas Buyers Club - Film Review

Home > Everywhere > Cinema | Film Reviews | Movie Reviews
Published March 13th 2014
I must be the last person on earth to see this flick.... so let's plunge in shall we?

It is an incredible film, which charts one man's determination to stay alive against outstanding odds, and most tantalisingly, supporting the very people he despises.

It's a top-notch drama, which doesn't manipulate the viewers and confirms Mathew McConaughey as one of the finest actors in the business.

He embodies Woodroof with a mesmerising performance, in the way he relieves the unpleasant character of any sentimentality. Jared Leto is painfully tragic as Rayon, Woodroof's transgendered business partner, who brings focus and purpose to his life,if not her own.

There are no cheap shots, no epiphanies, no hallelujah break- through,just one single hug, a nervous one at that.

"Once you get HIV, you're married to it" said Woodroof, a pragmatic utterance that governed his life in the face of death.

Spellbinding cinema.
