You Should Listen to This Chest-Thumping Remix of The Wolf of Wall Street

"Dallas Buyers Club": When the Illegal Drugs Are Medicine

Having lost 40 pounds to embody AIDS activist Ron Woodroof, Matthew McConaughey may resemble a shadow of his former self in Dallas Buyers Club, but his outsized charisma — here colored with subtle vulnerability — is nonetheless the spark that…

"Mud": Matthew McConaughey and Those Terrible Women

Here's the thing: Not every movie has to be a feminist tract or even have a female hero, but it is hard to ignore that Jeff Nichols' Mud lacks a single female character that isn't actively breaking the hearts of…

"The Paperboy": Getting Filthy in Sweaty South Florida

Precious director Lee Daniels' Southern Gothic noir presents itself with the doubtful come-hither hospitality of a gator-filled swamp. Moistly set in South Florida in the '60s, it involves cornfed creep John Cusack's wrongful imprisonment on death row coming to the…

"Killer Joe": Matthew McConaughey Is a Lurid Pleasure

At one point in Killer Joe, a hideously funny tabloid noir set on the outskirts of Dallas County, Chris Smith (Emile Hirsch) is let into the family double-wide by a relation whose face has just been pummeled into a Rorschach…

Matthew McConaughey is scary bad in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Two weeks after jowly Matthew Perry transformed into pretty Zac Efron to relive his adolescence in 17 Again, Warner Bros. releases Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, another backward and backward-looking child-is-father-to-the-man rom-com, with Matthew McConaughey, who, 18 years Efron's senior and…

Film, Apocalypse Whatever

Apocalypse Whatever

Early buzz out of Hollywood pegged Tropic Thunder, directed and co-written by star Ben Stiller, as the end-all and be-all of movie-biz parodies — a savage beast with a rough touch featuring Tom Cruise in a career-resurrecting role as bald-headed,…

Kate Hudson's 'Fool's Gold' Totally Worthless

When a friend recently told me that she'd been confused by the poster for the Matthew McConaughey-Kate Hudson fortune-hunting romp Fool's Gold adorning her local multiplex — that she'd thought for sure this movie had already come and gone —…

Oh Grow Up

A star who turned into a black hole somewhere between the release of, oh, The Wedding Planner and Sahara (or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Two for the Money -- really, where to draw the line),…

Fortunate Son

Sahara is a stunning piece of work -- stunningly inept, stunningly incoherent, stunningly awful in every single way imaginable. How this didn't go direct to video or cable or airplane or bootleg is unfathomable. Actually, that's not entirely true. It…

Film, The Lord's Work?

The Lord's Work?

It is possible to admire Frailty, directed by Texas-born actor Bill Paxton, without actually liking it. It's not, strictly speaking, a gratifying movie: Too dependent upon twists, both excruciatingly obvious and irritatingly ludicrous, it never fully satisfies. What you can't…
