Ray Meets Helen Directed by Alan Rudolph

Critics reviews

Comprising multiple, loosely interwoven plot threads united as much by the characters’ lyrical speech patterns as their end-of-life longings, “Ray Meets Helen” has a wistful, whimsical sophistication that has all but disappeared from movies. Filled with imaginative visuals populated by the ghosts of the gone and hopes for the future, the movie is wonderfully, magically humane.

Rudolph understands the poignant silliness of fantasies, which he lightly parodies and profusely indulges. This is the Rudolph touch: an ability to have his genre-infused cake and to eat it too, in a postmodern, tonally limber fashion that’s empathetic rather than elitist. . . . We’re invited to drink in the charisma of the actors as they marinate in the past while proffering a weirdly sexy vision of regret.
