Jamie Foxx, in a brilliant performance, feels his way into every groove and tremor of Ray Charles. Ray has a sprawling episodic structure that’s a bit lumpy, but it’s driven by the primal excitement of rock-and-soul at the moment of its discovery. Ray’s demons and temptations are portrayed without apology, as the expression of a man wired not to compromise his will.
