In 1985, a cocky homophobic sex-, booze-, and drug-addicted Texas redneck named Ron Woodroof was diagnosed as HIV-positive, then known almost exclusively as “the gay disease.” His reaction to the diagnosis, and his battle against the big-hospital/big-pharma/FDA cartel that put profit ahead of patients, is the basis for this remarkable story. Taking it to the next level are the terrific performances of Matthew McConaughey as Woodroof and Jared Leto (Mr. Nobody) as his sweet but steely transvestite sidekick Rayon. Rated R. 117 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. See review.
