About this movie

When ex-blues musician Lazarus (Samuel L. Jackson) finds the town nymphomaniac Rae (Christina Ricci) left for dead on the side of the road, he vows to nurse her back to health...and cure her of her wickedness. Until then, she'll be chained to the immovable radiator in his home. But Lazarus has demons of his own: his wife just left him for his own brother. While Lazarus and Rae struggle to fix their broken lives, the situation threatens to explode as Rae's boyfriend Ronnie (Justin Timberlake) — a roughneck soldier just back from Iraq — comes searching for his missing lover.

I've always meant to watch this movie, but didn't get around to it for years; after seeing it, I have to say that it's going to remain a favorite for the foreseeable future. The plot is engaging and moving, and the actors play their characters as though they were walking in their shoes instead of just reading lines. I would definitely recommend Black Snake Moan to anyone who wants a movie that takes them on a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs, but ends with a satisfying finish.

Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci, two very amazing artists. I was glued to the movie, human kindness is very inspiring. Everyone needs to see this movie to see the way people are supposed to treat each other!

If you love the blues, this movie will hit ya right where want it to. It's not a Blues music movie, but, after you see it, my review will make sense. This movie gets it, you should too.
