Matthew McConaughey didn't just lose 40 pounds to play Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club.
He changed the entire direction of his career.
The role marked a turning point for the actor, earning an Academy Award nomination for himself and for co-star Jared Leto, both of which couldn't have been more well-deserved.
The film itself, meanwhile, takes us back to 1985 and tells the tale of the early days of the AIDS breakout. It's gripping, it's intense and it's even funny at times.
