Matthew McConaughey has been quite the ambitious actor over this past decade. He’s been tackling some heavy roles, which is now made quite literal with his latest performance in Stephen Gaghan‘s Gold.
McConaughey has packed on some pounds in a film that reminds me of a sweat-soaked and more down-and-dirty take on Blow.
I know the two films are totally unrelated, but there’s just something about McConaughey’s energy that reminds me of what Johnny Depp did with Blow.
Gold could perhaps lead to Oscar gold for McConaughey, in which this case I’d say he deserves it and that’s just basing my opinions off the trailer alone.
Can’t wait to check out the entire film!
