    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    McConaughey makes sure we feel his tenacity and triumphs in the treatment of AIDS. His explosive, unerring portrayal defines what makes an actor great, blazing commitment to a character and the range to make every nuance felt. show more

    The limits of Dallas Buyers Club are the limits most true stories come up against, which are the facts. A good story lands and reverberates. In real life, stories have a way of just stopping and leaving you a bit unsatisfied. The latter is what happens in this movie, but perhaps that couldn't be avoided. show more

    Through its detailed depiction of the lead character and McConaughey's outstanding portrayal, Dallas Buyers Club enlightens compellingly without sermonizing. show more

    This classic tale of a little guy taking on giants benefits from being essentially true, and from accomplished filmmaking, but most of all from the beautiful vitality of Mr. McConaughey's performance. show more

    McConaughey's performance isn't just about the weight loss. It's about gaining compassion, even wisdom, and it's awesome. show more

    If Woodroof is the movie’s guts, Rayon is its heart, and Leto (TV’s “My So-Called Life,” “Alexander”) is stunningly perfect, even when the story veers ever so slightly into expected territory. show more

    What distinguishes Borten and Wallack’s screenplay is its refusal to sentimentalize by providing humbling epiphanies to set Ron on the right path and endow him with empathy. show more

    It’s all about the performances. McConaughey and Leto don’t just give voice to the disenfranchised of the 1980s, but all people suddenly faced with impossible challenges. show more

    McConaughey's flirty drawl and rowdy energy have never been put to better dramatic use than they are in Dallas Buyers Club. show more

    Dallas Buyers Club represents the best of what independent film on a limited budget can achieve — powerful, enlightening and not to be missed. show more

    If for no other reason Matthew McConaughey is outstanding in this movie! If he does not win an award something is terribly wrong. From start to finish this movie holds your attention. One of 2013s best.

    If you appreciate actors who are true artist,the sort who sacrifice self to their characters, then you will relish the amazing performances in this film.I was so captivated by the artistry of the performances and honest message of this film,that the fact that it was 2 hrs long completely escaped me.

    LOVED this movie. I didn\'t expect to love it. I didn\'t know Matthew McConaughey could act. Absolutely brilliant movie. I\'m glad I watched it and I\'m glad I didn\'t walk away feeling like I\'d wasted two hours of my life I could never get back.
