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. – Charles Taylor, Salon.com, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Vibrantly intelligent and tough-minded. – David Denby, New Yorker, Jan 5, 2005

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. – Peter Rainer, New York Magazine, Jan 5, 2005

Inspirational

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.
