“Dallas Buyers Club”

Standard

So I remember once reading the opening of a book called Brian’s Song, and it said ‘All true stories end in death’ – morbid, but kinda true. “Dallas Buyers Club” is a true story.. and it’s one of the better movies I’ve seen all year. It’s tells the story of Ron Woodward, and for those of you who don’t know who that is, he was probably one of the 1st straight men to be infected with HIV back in the day, 1985ish, when no one really knew anything about the disease. It’s an incredible story that tells one man’s odyssey of fighting for his life & others against the almighty FDA who just don’t really care if people live or die with their ridiculous procedures. Matthew McConaughy is almost unrecognizable and gives possibly the performance of his lifetime & for me he is 2 for 2 this year with ‘Mud’ also being really good. I do see a possible Oscar Nom for him on this.. Jared Leto – NEEDS to be nominated for Best Supporting Actor (or Actress  he is superb. All in all, great performances, great story for all to see. Don’t miss this movie!!! Grade: A #peggyatthemovies
