As far as I can see, the Rotten Tomatoes Top Critics are 100% on Dallas Buyers Club. Rather on Maththew McConaughey's performance. I completely agree. He's amazing, all the more so for once having been such a pretty boy. Here are a few blurbs:
Dallas Buyers Club rests squarely on Matthew McConaughey's scrawny shoulders, and he carries the burden gracefully with what might be a career-best performance.
McConaughey delivers the performance of his career, characterized not just by an astonishing physical transformation but by a wellspring of deep compassion and fearlessness.
In many ways, the film is all about Matthew McConaughey, and Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee is wise enough to train his focus on the actor.
McConaughey proves he has evolved from a handsome lightweight to one of the most talented, risk-taking actors in Hollywood.
Much has been written about his career roll from rom-com to the highs of Mud, Magic Mike, Bernie and Killer Joe. But what McConaughey does here is transformative. Damn, he's good.
[McConaughey and Leto] elevate the movie beyond ordinary biography or overplayed tragedy, and give Oscar-worthy performances in the process.
