Consensus: Dallas Buyers Club rests squarely on Matthew McConaughey's scrawny shoulders, and he carries the burden gracefully with what might be a career-best performance.

The AIDS epidemic was not a happy-ending story. But it was certainly a test of the human spirit. Ron Woodroof passed that test.

Just about everything is right with Dallas Buyers Club, beginning with Matthew McConaughey's literally transformative portrayal.

Miami Herald

A straight-up portrait of a man who figured out a way to cling to life longer than anyone expected and, in the process, learned to let the world in.

Rafer Guzman

A solid biopic is made transcendent by McConaughey, who shed nearly 50 pounds and deserves to gain an Oscar for his ferocious, funny performance.

Denver Post

Played with raw, rattling fury and grace by Matthew McConaughey, Woodroof is a tarnished protagonist of the first order.

Though Jean-Marc Vallée's direction is sometimes indistinct, it does allow the actors to come off more inhibited in their performances and each scene is that much more authentic.

Really good loosely based bio-drama. A good look at the early history of AIDS. Shocking to watch how Matthew, and Jared, transformed themselves to look so… More
