I've always been a big fan of Ray Charles but apart from his music and and few interviews he did in the late eighties, I really didn't know that much about him. He was a bit of a rascal eh! I have to be honest, I though this was going to be another cliched biopic but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be pretty original. At first it seemed like it was going at around a month a second but Hackford wisely and masterfully uses flash-backs to his advantage. It has become somewhat of a template now but I guess if it ain't broke, don't bother fixing it! Jamie Foxx isn't an actor that I'm that enamoured by at the best of times but I was impressed with his performance here.
