    That was an interesting review, thanks. I particularly liked your comments about Vallee's direction and the politics of the main character.

    I thought Dallas Buyers Club was a very good film. Even though I had been a volunteer for the AIDS Council through the 90s, I'd never heard of the 'buyers clubs' so this was an eye opener.

    The performances by Leto and McConaughey are great (I'll be interested to hear what others thought of the Rayon character). I was wondering if I was mesmerised by McConaughey (and Leto) because I was watching the 'weight loss' thing...but no.

    Having seen most of this season's other 'award nomination' films, I think their awards to date are well deserved.

    Matthew McConaughey portrays a not too lovable hustler, surrounded by lots of other hustlers, whose lifestyles don't exactly endear much sympathy. The movie is way too drawn out & could have been condensed a bit to make it more fluid. I give it 2 stars but agree that his performance was very good. I wonder if he's gained back the weight that he lost for the role. He didn't look too good in the film.

    Agreed. This is a fine movie, and McConaughey shines in a complex role, but his acting talents are rarely extended beyond his usual Texan good ol boy persona, which is McConaughey himself. Losing weight does not an Oscar make, or at least it shouldn't, and not looking like your celebrity pics confuses looks with performance. Pay me $10 million a movie, and I'll lose 40kg,
