Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

In 1985 Dallas, electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is himself diagnosed with the disease. [imdb]

Nominated for 6 Oscars:
Best Picture
Actor: Matthew McConaughey (WINNER)
Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto
Best Original Screenplay
Best Editing

Best Makeup and Hairstyling

Well, we knew McConaughey had it in him to deliver an amazing performance, and I'm really happy for Jared Leto. Both deliver career-best performances, from what I am aware of. This film couldn't have been easy to write and it works really well, especially in the first half. Of course, it relies a lot on the acting, and luckily it's quite amazing.

Regardless of my personal feelings towards the egotistic real-life McConaughey, his might just be the best male performance of 2013, and he has a whole bunch of emotional scenes, very well acted.

For the most part, I approve of the film. Sure, it could've been better, but it still hits plenty of right notes.

My rating for the film: 8/10.
