  • Roger Moore

    Dallas Buyers Club is one of the best pictures of the year.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Vallée, working with a lean, lively script by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack, neatly avoids excess, letting Woodroof’s terrific yarn stand on its own and getting out of the way of his extraordinary actors, who channel the story without condescension or manipulative cheats.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Despite its clichéd elements, Dallas Buyers Club is a fierce celebration of the unpredictable power that belongs to the outcast, the despised, the pariah. That’s not a story of the ‘80s, it’s a story of always. Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Dallas Buyers Club represents the best of what independent film on a limited budget can achieve — powerful, enlightening and not to be missed.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    What's remarkable about Dallas Buyers Club is its lack of sentimentality. The movie, like its star, is all angles and elbows, earning its emotion through sheer pragmatism.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The film manages to educate without ever feeling didactic, and to entertain in the face of what would, to any other character, seem like a grim life sentence.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It wouldn’t be surprising to hear about moviegoers demanding their money back after seeing The Dallas Buyers Club, but not because the film isn’t good. It’s actually very nearly great.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Jean-Marc Vallee’s film is anything but standard, thanks to an astonishing performance by Matthew McConaughey.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This classic tale of a little guy taking on giants benefits from being essentially true, and from accomplished filmmaking, but most of all from the beautiful vitality of Mr. McConaughey's performance.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    This is a bold, drastic and utterly persuasive inhabiting of a doomed fighter by a performer who has graduated from the shirtless rom-com Romeo of the last decade to indie-film actor du jour.

    Time Full Review
  • David Rooney

    What distinguishes Borten and Wallack’s screenplay is its refusal to sentimentalize by providing humbling epiphanies to set Ron on the right path and endow him with empathy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    McConaughey's performance isn't just about the weight loss. It's about gaining compassion, even wisdom, and it's awesome.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    At once a fascinating character study and a scathing indictment of the role of the medical-pharmaceutical complex in exacerbating the AIDS crisis, the fact-based Dallas Buyers Club is one of the best films of the year.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Thanks to the superb screenplay by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack and the brilliant, brave performances by the cast, Dallas Buyers Club gets just about everything right, save for a few over-the-top scenes that hammer home points that have already been made.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It’s a remarkable story, vividly and urgently told by French-Canadian director Vallée (“The Young Victoria”) from a pointed, schmaltz-free script by Craig Borten and Melissa Wallack.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    McConaughey makes sure we feel his tenacity and triumphs in the treatment of AIDS. His explosive, unerring portrayal defines what makes an actor great, blazing commitment to a character and the range to make every nuance felt.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    McConaughey's flirty drawl and rowdy energy have never been put to better dramatic use than they are in Dallas Buyers Club.

    NPR Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    It’s all about the performances. McConaughey and Leto don’t just give voice to the disenfranchised of the 1980s, but all people suddenly faced with impossible challenges. Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    If we admire anything about him, it’s entrepreneurship; there’s something uniquely American about a guy outrunning his own death by turning suffering into profit. And as a judge asks, why shouldn’t a dying man be allowed to try any remedy for his disease?

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Director Jean-Marc Vallee dutifully progresses from one obvious scene to the next. Solid work but unspectacular, perhaps figuring the boldness of his characters' words and actions can be artistic enough. And it is, in the hands of a temporarily reformed sex symbol and his unexpected leading lady.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The real halo here belongs to McConaughey. He does justice to Ron’s story and to his own quicksilver talent.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    If not wholly convincing as an ‘issues’ movie, this memoir is a triumph as an actors’ showcase; with McConaughey and Leto giving the performances of their careers.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    Get this — Matthew McConaughey is currently the most exciting acting talent at work in movies. Next up, the simple business of a Christopher Nolan.

    Empire Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    McConaughey and Leto's performances are also the saviors of Vallee's film, which has a way of belaboring certain points and, in the process, robbing his film of no small amount of momentum.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This is a movie that traffics in deep hindbrain emotions: fear and rage and lust and, above all, the pure animal drive to go on living.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    If Woodroof is the movie’s guts, Rayon is its heart, and Leto (TV’s “My So-Called Life,” “Alexander”) is stunningly perfect, even when the story veers ever so slightly into expected territory.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Even with some flaws and flailing, Dallas Buyers Club is a rough, raw, ragged and exhilarating ride.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    It’s a formulaic story that takes full advantage of these broad, familiar formulas to win viewers, but finds enough unique detail to retain its own identity.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Only 20 minutes in and you’re not going to think of another lead who could pull off this kind of reckoning — tangy, furious and about to become whip-smart.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Despite its downbeat context (a plague at its height), the movie is a crowd-­pleaser — graceful and funny enough to distract you from its gaps and elisions.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    At just under two hours, it's a little long, but the blend of biting character study and campaigning pharmaceutical docudrama is zesty and memorable.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Paul MacInnes

    [McConaughey] delivers a twitchy, hostile performance on par with anything he's done since he escaped the rom com cul-de-sac.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Dallas Buyers Club is an indelible story about one man’s unwillingness to go gently into that good night, and the personal growth he experiences along the way.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    This is a straight-up portrait of a man who figured out a way to cling to life longer than anyone expected and, in the process, learned to let the world in.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The limits of Dallas Buyers Club are the limits most true stories come up against, which are the facts. A good story lands and reverberates. In real life, stories have a way of just stopping and leaving you a bit unsatisfied. The latter is what happens in this movie, but perhaps that couldn't be avoided.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Regardless of who sees or doesn't see Dallas Buyers Club, however, the movie does what it sets out to do by providing a striking portrait of a remarkable character and offering a history lesson to those too young to remember how things were for AIDS sufferers during the dark ages of the 1980s.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    By the end of this sincerely calculated, always watchable movie, everything has burned away but the fury, including whatever you may think or have thought about the actor you’re looking at. That’s how good the performance is.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    McConaughey is first-rate throughout, on top of every dramatic and blackly comic situation, even when the character isn't on top of anything.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    If Dallas Buyers Club falls somewhat short in the categories of historical chronicle, emotional wallop, and information delivery, its conscientious attempts to portray a group of people in trouble in a troubled time delivers mini-epiphanies in a series of small doses. And that isn't nothing. Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Through its detailed depiction of the lead character and McConaughey's outstanding portrayal, Dallas Buyers Club enlightens compellingly without sermonizing.

    USA Today Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    There’s something undeniably affecting about that trajectory, which allows McConaughey to turn his character into an empathetic figure — one whose prejudice fades as his fighting spirit intensifies — without sacrificing his rapscallion spirit. He’s the same loudmouthed macho braggart at the end of the movie than he was at the beginning, but now he’s a loudmouthed macho braggart with purpose.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    It's been 20 years since Tom Hanks put a movie star's face on the AIDS crisis in "Philadelphia." Since then, Hollywood has largely ignored one of the most tragic chapters of the 20th century. Considering that track record, even a movie as imperfect as Dallas Buyers Club is something worth celebrating.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    The narrative only really stumbles because its tone never manages to convince on the level that McConaughey's performance eventually does. With its subdued approach, Dallas Buyers Club stops just short of an emotional payoff.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Despite the fine performances from McConaughey and Leto, tightly coiled editing that keeps the story moving and a nicely measured balance between drama and comedy (McConaughey is often a hoot), Dallas Buyers Club still sometimes feels like it's missing one more grace note.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    There is warmth and intelligence here, and undeniable sincerity, but also a determination, in the face of much painful and fascinating history, to play it safe.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    Conventional but never sanctimonious, it balances out its familiar recovery angle with a healthy measure of sardonic wit.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • David Denby

    As the real-life Ronald Woodroof, he (Mcconaughey) does work that is pretty much astounding. [4 Nov. 2013, p.116]
