Black Snake Moan


Black Snake Moan
After her boyfriend leaves to fight in Iraq, a young woman with a severe case of nymphomania does what she can to satisfy her urges. After getting drunk and enduring a gang bang, she is beaten up by her boyfriend's best friend and left for dead at the side of the road. She is rescued by an older black man, who decides to take her in and cure her of her obsession. He does this by chaining her to his radiator. She starts to recover, and he gets to deal with his own hangups, until her boyfriend comes home from Iraq and learns that his girlfriend is now living with a black man. He goes looking for revenge... Sensitive viewers should probably give this one a skip.

Mail & Guardian
Shaun de Waal

The Citizen
Peter Feldman quote iconBlack Snake Moan is a fascinating film, designed to resemble a B-grade exploitation flick but rising far above it.
14
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconThe acting is superlative.
15
BBC
Stella Papamichael quote iconThis is an unusually bold film, but it's also a morality tale that's riddled with hypocrisy and is frankly offensive.
5
Box Office
Ray Greene quote iconA film filled with sly pleasures for those who can throttle their inner puritan to the floor long enough to find them.
13
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconYou have never seen a movie like this before. Then again, you may not hope to.
15
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconCould the rest of 2007 possibly beget a movie as skeezy as Black Snake Moan?
10
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe film pushes more buttons than an elevator operator but, in the end, Black Snake Moan works to turn expectations upside down.
18
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconRicci 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.
