Dallas Buyers Club

DALLAS BUYERS CLUB is a fantastic piece of work. Thoughtful, gritty, sad stuff. Matthew McConaughy is a real fighter here, and Jared Leto is excellent. Deals with HIV, AIDS, and early AZT trials, and how alternative treatments were rendered illegal and crushed out by Big pharma and the FDA. The Buyers Clubs were the means by which one could get these alternatives, and I learned a hell of a lot about the process. Levelheaded filmmaking, no bullshit. McConaughy can do anything, he’s so good.
