WORTH WATCHING? There are many things that make a movie a success. Sometimes it’s the story; other times it’s the cast. Sometimes all there is to appreciate is the effort of the crew behind the scenes. With Dallas Buyers Club, every element surprises you with perfection. And it isn’t very often that this level of flawlessness hits the big screen.
You can’t really tell who’s done a better job as an actor — Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto. It’s just a matter of commending them both.
VERDICT: A good movie of this kind comes along rarely.
