Dallas Buyers Club is a tough movie, in all the senses, meaning it is dramatic, rough and sometimes can seem that it does not advance, a bit slow. Mathew McConaughey leads, with an outstanding performance, - that lead him to the Golden Globe award for best actor- this film about him and about people that suffered from aids. The texan is a VIH positive and when he discovers it, he starts a research that is going to make him realize that the drugs he is taking to survive, at least, for more than a month, aren't working.
Up to here the film could seem and in fact it is a bit slow because they want to show all the aspects of this skinny man, with aids, who is a drug addict and that does not want to work and that likes girls. The movie changes when Jared Leto, with also an amazing performance as a supporting actor, comes up and starts a drug business with Woodrof to prevent and help all the people who are VIH positive of have sida to survive by providing them a useful drug that results to be illegal because the pharmacy companies haven't agreed to commercialize it.
From this point the movie becomes very interesting and we get to see other parts of the main character and to see the struggle of a man that wants to be a woman that has the misfortune to suffer from aids. So in summary we could say that the second hour of the movie (it's 2 hours long) is the most "enjoyable" one.
In conclusion, Dallas Buyers Club offers us a different vision the people that have aids like Woodrof and that instead of depress himself or start a heroic struggle for survival, chooses fighting by providing the correct drugs to at least live a bit more. At first it seems he has no feelings but the movie is going to show he has. Leto's character is a crucial point.
Would recommend to see it for the performances but the thing is that the films seems impregnated with the dramatic and dark side of this kind of illnesses that corrode the people.
