ABOUT RAY ★★★☆☆
Elle Fanning as a transgender teen. Hipster/bohemian soap opera is conduit for familial response, but one can't help feel it is a narrative choice that detracts.
SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES ★★★★½
Tony Jaa, Simon Yam. Has the energy of THE RAID. Withholding info from leads, so full picture absent, is masterstroke.
[The rest of the day: Parties.]
