Film: Dallas Buyers Club


Another heavy film (cinema is getting exhausting!). 

Dallas Buyer's Club is an extremely well made movie, with excellent turns from Matthew McConnaughey and Jared Leto. It is loosely based on a true story, although this fact neither attracts nor detracts from the picture. Overall, this is a fantastic but emotionally taxing character study, that tells the story of a man who is up against the clock, the odds, and the state laws.

Interestingly, the movie opens and closes using the classic Times New Roman typeface for the film credits. Is this a retro font already?
