BioPic about Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey), a hard-living Texas rodeo guy who smacks into the homophobia of his world–including his own–when it turns out he is HIV+.
Brilliant first act reminds us of life in the late 80s, but then the power dissipates.
Conventional characters & hyped-up confrontations abound & no one–not even Woodroof–gets a convincing “inner life.” (JLH: 3/5)
