J. O.'s rating of the film Dallas Buyers Club

An overall good effort from the talented Vallée, with beautiful moments of cinematography, great production design, and very engaging performances. Despite this, it failed to really move beyond the surface of the story. The pharmaceutical issues were never expanded, the growing compassion in Woodruff's character was never fully recognized, and some gaps in the story are just too massive to remain unexplained.
