Jamie Foxx is excellent, and sturdily supported by [James L.] White's script all the way.

Potent and vibrant as far as the music goes, but reticent, self-conscious and pretty much stuck on unexplored surfaces when it comes to this creative giant's complex life and times.

Ray is a flawed film, but Foxx's captivating acting and a bustling soundtrack smooth the rough spots.

(...) Una lograda actuación y buena música no hacen, necesariamente, una gran película. Y Ray es uno de esos casos.

A very good film, regardless of whether or not you love Ray Charles' music. And even if it was a lesser film, Jamie Foxx's performance would have made it worth watching.

Yet another ho-hum man of genius biopic, showcasing a scenery-chewing lead-behaving-badly, shoddy Freudian psychoanalysis, and cliche bottom-of-the-ninth redemption.

A busca por concisão em uma cinebiografia é importante, mas não pode ser alcançada sacrificando-se a complexidade da história e tornando-a artificial, que é o que ocorre aqui.

Ray is a powerhouse of a film, and Jamie Foxx inhabits the character with so much voracity that it is impossible to decipher where Foxx ends and Charles starts.
