"Magic Mike" charmed the pants off audiences, and its star, Matthew McConaughey, collected some of the best notices of his career as stripper elder statesman Dallas. Reviews of the revue found Britain's the Guardian comparing his performance to Oscar-winning turns as an MC by Gig Young ("They Shoot Horses, Don't They?") and Joel Grey ("Cabaret"), and a breathless - perhaps panting - tribute in the Washington Post called him the best thing about the movie. But the tanned and ripped stud who drove audiences and some critics into fits of lust is not the man who sits down at a table at L'Ermitage.

A stylistic leap from the band's dance-mad debut, this dense album drops references to record-nerd obscurities such as Television Personalities that sail over our heads, but we also can't stop listening. How did MGMT make a record that sounds like the best of 1981 in 2010? Matthew McConaughey : If you've been on an airplane or watched HBO for any length of time, you've encountered the cinematic perpetual motion machine that is McConaughey.

Matthew McConaughey has just cracked open his second Corona when the man wearing Mardi Gras beads and a Village People policeman's cap approaches his car. "Do you know Duane?" the inebriated-looking man asks with suspicion, poking his head inside the window and gesturing to the house the car happens to be parked in front of.

" It's 9:30 on a Tuesday night, and McConaughey is sitting in the back of a black SUV with crime novelist Michael Connelly.

Between meetings and incoming texts on his BlackBerry one rainy afternoon in Venice, Matthew McConaughey tucked a discreet plug of tobacco behind his lower lip and said of himself: "When I was a late teenager, early 20s, just getting into this, I was like, 'OK, to be something other than oneself is real acting or better acting.' Then I went, 'Wait a minute.'

"A Time to Kill" director Joel Schumacher calls Matthew McConaughey "my Frankenstein." But only tongue in cheek, he swears. "I didn't create Matthew," Schumacher said of the 26-year-old actor starring in the film version of John Grisham's first and favorite novel, released last Wednesday.

Richard Linklater is trying hard to be Zen about his most recent experience in the unforgiving world of independent film. The director of "Slacker" and "Before Sunrise" — now 50 and long removed from the time, in the mid-1990s, when he was hailed as the filmmaking voice of a generation — has just completed his 16th picture. A low-budget dark comedy called "Bernie" starring Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey and Shirley MacLaine, the movie was a steep climb even by his standards of scrappy filmmaking.
