You can have all the prejudices you want, until you get AIDS.
This is a very touching story about a quite uncongenial person. About how getting HIV changes him and his views on the world, yet he stays the same son of a bitch at the same time. Despite him being a racist homophobic bastard you kind of feel sorry for him after a while.
The scary this is that anyone can get this disease, and there is still no cure for it and very little proven medication for reducing the symptoms. I think this movie illustrated pretty well how government agencies like the FDA are part of halting the development of a cure (or any cure for that matter) while trying at the best will to ensure that no one gets exposed to the wrong drugs. It is kind of a paradox.
I liked the movie, and it was better than I expected it to be. It is nominated for an Oscar and I think it could have won it. Also I think that Matthew McConaughey did a superior performance here and I do think that he could run off with an Oscar for his part. Very well done.
Watch this if you like a good drama, if you have to write an article about HIV/AIDS or if you just want to watch a well done sad movie.
