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.

Foxx makes Charles a bigger, more permanent star, just as Charles has launched Foxx to a higher plateau.

It's a bravura performance, but we never feel that we really know who Ray Charles was, or even that Foxx does.

Director Taylor Hackford's commentary is very good. He virtually never stops talking, providing all sorts of good insights and pats the backs of just about everyone involved.

Though Foxx is amazing, this almost plays like an ensemble film. And all of the actors nail their parts.
