Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Any viewers who look at Ray and see only cliches are declaring themselves hopelessly lost to the real achievement of this picture, which is nothing less than a statement of faith in the inclusiveness of American culture.
Fresh: Vibrantly intelligent and tough-minded.
Fresh: Sure, it's the Jamie Foxx breakout role. But the movie around it is so systematically 'inspirational' that it comes perilously close to sabotaging the breakout.
Whenever I need to do something difficult, whether I have to write a ten page term paper in less than ten hours or do a public speech; I only have to watch the last ten minutes of the movie to make me feel invicible. No movie has ever inspired me like that.
THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING MOVIE
WHERE IS THE SOUNDTRACK! I WANT IT NOW! THIS MOVIE IS THE BEST. A CLASSIC FOR YEARS TO COME. EVEN MY FATHER CRIED. xoxo
