Jamie Foxx's uncannily accurate performance isn't the only good thing about Ray. Riding high on a wave of Oscar buzz, Foxx proved himself worthy of all the hype by portraying blind R&B legend Ray Charles in a warts-and-all performance that Charles approved shortly before his death in June 2004. Despite a few dramatic embellishments of actual incidents (such as the suggestion that the accidental drowning of Charles's younger brother caused all the inner demons that Charles would battle into adulthood), the film does a remarkable job of summarizing Charles's strengths as a musical innovator and his weaknesses as a philandering heroin addict who recorded some of his best songs while flying high as a kite. Foxx seems to be channeling Charles himself, and as he did with the life of Ritchie Valens in La Bamba, director Taylor Hackford gets most of the period details absolutely right as he chronicles Ray's rise from "chitlin circuit" performer in the early '50s to his much-deserved elevation to legendary status as one of the all-time great musicians. Foxx expertly lip-syncs to Ray Charles' classic recordings, but you could swear he's the real deal in a film that honors Ray Charles without sanitizing his once-messy life. --Jeff Shannon

Customer Review of Ray (Widescreen Edition)
I bought this movie a few weeks ago and finally got around
>to watching it... I thought it was one of the better movies
>I've seen this other with the exception of Million Dollar
>Baby. The acting was top notch. It wasn't just Jamie Foxx
>either, as it was actually the entire cast.
>I thought Ray's mother was second to Jamie, and Kerry Wash-
>ington isn't far behind in 3rd place. I hope she makes it as
>a big star in the next few years.. Anyway, I thought the
>movie was well done. It didn't make it a complete feel good
>movie as there are times when you love Ray, and other times
>you want to hate him and lying cheating ways.
>It's amazing how Ray is so innocent at the start, but the
>fame and the attention obviousally became too much, and like
>lots of other singers he just got trapped in that type of
>I didn't like the fact that movie seem to go for a while and
>it seemed at the end it just kind of cut to the chase and
>act as if his career died after the 60's, which obviousally
>isn't true.... I guess I understand it alittle because the
>movie ran 2 1/2 hours as it is, but I'd like for it to have
>been finished to atleast the 90's or so.
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED!!!
I love Ray Charles' music. The first half was great but his drug addiction was disturbing. I see the point of showing his tragic times but to not show the second part of his life, how he recovered from his addiction was so agenda written that it was sad. I feel this was an incomplete movie. Ray was a great performer but he was also a piece of garbage in this movie. I hope someone out there will remake this movie and show all of Ray's outstanding career. He made mistakes and big ones, but he recovered and became a household name in Jazz and the Blues.
>It should have been a better movie. I am very emotional when it comes to movies, which makes me love movies. I like to know that it had an affect on me and it did for a litte bit. After awhile I couldn't wait for it to end. I don't mind sad movies but there is a difference between sad and depressing movies. This movie was depressing!!! You can make it work if it's sad but depressing never works.
>Do you want an average movie or are you striving for greatness?????
Great - But Give Credit Where Due
This move was absolutely fantastic. It isn't a thriller, it isn't funny, it isn't dramatic, it isn't a musical, but it is all of them.
>Jamie Foxx is Ray...He not only acts, he becomes and that makes the movie awesome. But to me, the real talent is in Sharon Warren, the woman that plays Ray's mother. Please give this woman work and get her an oscar...She deserves it!
