Matthew McConaughey’s comeback continues with “Mud”

Showed at Cannes, showing at Sundance, here’s another in a long string of smart choices that Matthew McConaughey has been making of late.
Yes, it’s nice to honor DeNiro — again — for his fine if not exactly ground-breaking turn in “Silver Linings Playbook.” But he and a couple of others stole McConaughey’s “Magic Mike” or “Killer Joe” nomination. It ain’t right.
But if he keeps picking stuff like this dark, contemplative tale of a man on the run, meeting some boys — “Call Me Mud” — waiting for Reese Witherspoon to join him, he’ll have other chances.
