We often say art "cuts close to the bone," but in its depiction of clinking liquor bottles and drawers of unopened rent notices soaked in dog urine, Ray & Liz slices clean through that bone.
July 11, 2019
Performed with absolute commitment by its cast (Justin Salinger and Ella Smith play the younger versions of the title characters), "Ray & Liz" is a quietly harrowing movie.

With its very tamped-down emotion, Bellingham's decision not to attempt insight or empathy is the most telling display of the consequences of his story.

[A] film in which the memories you can't shake and the memories you won't let go become indistinguishable from the ones you never had.

A quietly enraged, ultimately compassionate portrait of people who have nothing.

"Ray & Liz" is formally arresting and rigorous, though not at the expense of its direct emotional force.

An intensely observed narrative feature that draws deeply from Billingham's previous work.
