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.
Rotten: Ray is filled with such pleasures, but it's hobbled by the too-familiar conventions of the musical biopic: with so many chapters of Charles's life to cover, Hackford's movie never finds a rhythm, a groove, to settle into.
Fresh: Vibrantly intelligent and tough-minded.
Fresh: It takes all of five seconds, tops, to believe that Jamie Foxx is the young Ray Charles.
great piano player

as sweet as the music
taylor hackford pieces together a fine piece of art which should stand beside the godfather and ed wood as one of the finest movies ever made. jamie foxx is amazing
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.
