This is a dramatic, more "independent" movie that probably isn't at many theaters. Matthew McConaughey did a great job and Jared Leto deserves an oscar for this. The movie deals with HIV/AIDS in the mid 1980's and is very, very good.
I saw this over the weekend. I thought it was really good, with a great performance by McConaughey. We had previously watched the documentary How To Survive A Plague, and I'm glad we did. I think I appreciated DBC more by having a bit of understanding of what was going on then in terms of the government's response to HIV/AIDS. Well worth seeing.
I'm only a couple episodes in so far (I don't binge shows), but I think the big problem is that the show was sold and billed as something it's not. It's not a show about kung fu. It's not a show about magic. It's barely a show about super heroes.
