McConaughey will be on the list of nominees for Best Actor but if Leto doesn't win Best Supporting Actor, it will be a travesty.
"Dallas Buyers Club" is a classic fighting-for-a-cause movie with BIG focus on character development. Due to a good story and especially superb performances by McConaughey and Leto, this movie is lifted to a level above a lot of similar flicks. Worth a watch.
This is really an actor's movie. Highly impressive performances by McConaughey and Leto - and even though the Academy loves actors who transform themselves for a role, both shouldn't win because they shed a lot of weight, but because they're terrific in their parts.
The story itself.... engaging and solid, but among the year's best? Not in my book. Both start and ending are dazzling, but there's quite a large section in the middle that seems to be going in circles. But the theme of being allowed to control your own life and health is handled very well indeed.
