What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry Cuddly Jackson redeems a balmy film.
Mariana Malan Die blues-klankbaan is suiwer plesier.
|Mail & Guardian|
Shaun de Waal
Peter Feldman Black Snake Moan is a fascinating film, designed to resemble a B-grade exploitation flick but rising far above it.
Barry Ronge The acting is superlative.
Stella Papamichael This is an unusually bold film, but it's also a morality tale that's riddled with hypocrisy and is frankly offensive.
Ray Greene A film filled with sly pleasures for those who can throttle their inner puritan to the floor long enough to find them.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert You have never seen a movie like this before. Then again, you may not hope to.
Jason Anderson Could the rest of 2007 possibly beget a movie as skeezy as Black Snake Moan?
James Berardinelli The film pushes more buttons than an elevator operator but, in the end, Black Snake Moan works to turn expectations upside down.
Peter Travers Ricci gives it her all, and then some, but even her body and Jackson's blues can't heal a movie that rockets plum off its nut.
Tomatometer The performances and killer soundtrack elevate the film beyond its premise.
