Here is a list of all movies by American actor Matthew McConaughey.

Matthew McConaughey, an accomplished American actor, rose to fame with his breakthrough role in the Richard Linklater-directed coming-of-age comedy "Dazed and Confused" in 1993. Following this success, he secured his first lead role in the 1996 film adaptation of John Grisham's novel "A Time to Kill." McConaughey's early career showcased his versatility with roles in various genres. In 1997, he played the lawyer Roger Sherman Baldwin in Steven Spielberg's historical drama "Amistad" and starred alongside Jodie Foster in Robert Zemeckis' science fiction drama "Contact." The late 1990s saw him in the Linklater-directed comedy-drama "The Newton Boys."

During the 2000s, McConaughey faced typecasting as a romantic comedy lead in films such as "The Wedding Planner" (2001), "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" (2003), "Failure to Launch" (2006), and "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" (2009).

However, in the early 2010s, McConaughey underwent a career reinvention, commonly referred to as the "McConaissance." This transformation was marked by his shift towards dramatic roles, starting with his portrayal of Mickey Haller in "The Lincoln Lawyer" (2011) and his collaboration with Linklater again in the black comedy "Bernie" (2011). He also played the title role in the Southern Gothic crime film "Killer Joe" (2011), earning him the Saturn Award for Best Actor.

In 2013, McConaughey's remarkable performance as Ron Woodroof in the biographical drama "Dallas Buyers Club" earned him widespread acclaim, including the Academy Award for Best Actor, the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor (Drama), and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. His career resurgence continued with roles in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013), the television crime drama series "True Detective" (2014), and Christopher Nolan's science fiction film "Interstellar" (2014).

McConaughey's impressive achievements during the "McConaissance" period, including critical acclaim and prestigious awards, solidified his status as one of Hollywood's leading actors. His ability to navigate between genres and deliver compelling performances has made him a prominent figure in the film industry.
