'Dallas Buyers Club' Tests The Limits Of McConaughey's Sexiness By Giving Him AIDS In The 1980's
Does this make up for 'Failure to Launch'? Possibly. McConaughey may not be making waves by popping up in huge tentpole blockbusters these days, but his last half-dozen roles or so in films like Mud, Magic Mike, and Killer Joe have restored a lot of the credibility that was eroded during his dark, troubling rom-com phase. It seems the streak has no sign of ending, as he's signed up for another heavy one with Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays an AIDS patient given a month to live. Understandably, his character goes on a mission to find the then-new drug AZT. Keep it, Matt. You're raging against the stupid summer movie machine.
