I didn't want to like it, but I did. The much nominated-biopic "Ray" was actually very entertaining. That's one type of storytelling that "Hollywood" has down pat.
I was touched and transported and all that good stuff, not to mention awestruck by the incredible achievements that Ray Charles made in his lifetime despite overwhelming physical and racial obstacles. I've never been a big fan of his music, but the way the songs were integrated into the story was masterful. And the acting was terrific throughout. I understand the Jamie Foxx fuss now.
I can't believe I got suckered by Oscar bait, but with all those hooks how could I help it?
