"The writing is insightful and crisp, and Hawke and McGregor shine as two men who really don’t know each other all that well but have always felt close because they had to cling to one another in a united front against a father who continues to dominate their thoughts even after he’s gone."
"The winning, easy-going chemistry between Ethan Hawke and Ewan McGregor buys this modern melodrama plenty of credit, time and goodwill."
"Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke are outstanding in "Raymond & Ray," a movie that gives them the chance to focus on developing their characters rather than serving the whims of a plot."
"McGregor's performance is reserved and powerful, Hawke's is out there and naked and Rodrigo Garcia's flawless script and understanding direction create an experience to treasure. And there's never been a funeral like it onscreen!"
"Raymond And Ray reaffirms the filmmaker’s command of gentle, emotionally complex human portraiture."

"A winning delve into contemporary masculinity and all its quirks that is as tenderly observed as it is laugh-out-loud funny."
