Critics reviews

Ray was the opposite of an ‘aesthetic’ director; for him, style was always a tool for interrogating the wider social world. And I would suggest that what we have here is not an empty exercise in ornate visual excess, but rather one of American cinema’s most devastating critiques of McCarthyism.
