The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Dallas Buyers Club”

By Matt Neglia 

Our 2013 retrospective continues through July with a film that received a ton of praise, including three Oscar wins at the time of its release. It has gone on to be re-evaluated since then for its problematic casting and handling of its sensitive subject material. We are talking about “Dallas Buyers Club,” starring Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, and Jennifer Garner. What do we think of the story, the performances, the writing, the directing and editing from Jean-Marc Vallée, the film’s criticism, and more? It’s a very detailed and nuanced conversation with a range of opinions. We hope you enjoy hearing from me, Amanda SpearsZoe Rose Bryant & Patreon guest Tyler Strandberg. You can also check out our previous 2013 retrospective reviews of “Captain Phillips,” “Philomena,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Her,” & “Inside Llewyn Davis” if you have not done so already.
