Emmet Ray, body and soul: Woody Allen explores the conflict between the artist and his art in this bittersweet comedy of a jazz guitar player who only shines when he plays. Penn's Emmet Ray is a pimp, a cheat, a con man and a sadist - to name his finer points - but all is forgiven when he picks up his guitar. Again Penn skillfully showcases the devious duplicity of human nature. For Ann Hornaday of the Baltimore Sun, Penn syncs up with Allen's vision with "a lovely, soulful performance in a movie that manages to imbue tragedy with just the right grace note of insouciance."
