Rented Ray on Friday, finally got around to watching it last night. Great movie. I really liked the saturated look of the flashback scenes - interesting effect. I wonder if Ray Charles was really tormented by the nightmares as they showed, though. Can't really ask him now.

The demons that possess many tremendously talented people still don't stop them from producing fantastic work. And yet, many other people are tormented by the same demons and produce nothing of value. Guess correlation is not causation.

Yeah, I know it's not deep. I'm tired. Daylight Savings Time is like a week of jet lag. And, of course, my job is so exciting I can barely keep up. :-|

Ray was alive during the actual filming and was pretty hands on during the process, so I'm guessing the dream sequences were pretty accurate by his standards. I still haven't seen it, though. It's in our Netflix list. I've seen just about every interview, though, with Jamie Fox so I feel as if I've seen half of it.

And I'm definitely with you on the jet lag status. Sucks booty!
