Director Craig Brewer follows up his unexpectedly well-received pimp drama HUSTLE AND FLOW with this stylish tale of the unlikely connections that are forged when a lost soul attempts to cure a young nymphomaniac of her wicked ways. Set deep down south in a small Tennessee town the film is titled after and largely driven by the force of blues music. Pulsating with colour and bold cinematography the story forms a visual counterpart to a blues ballad. When divorced ex-musician Lazarus (Samuel L. Jackson) finds Rae (Christina Ricci) badly beaten by the side of the road he brings her to his house and chains her to his radiator. Rae has been a wreck since her boyfriend (Justin Timberlake) went off to war and has spent her time getting into fights and being taken advantage of by just about every man in town. Rae appears to be afflicted with a physical need for sex that no one can cure. As Lazarus watches Rae twitching with pain on his couch he sees that the young woman s only chance at redemption is in his hands. While the premise is outlandish and the film opens itself up for much moral criticism BLACK SNAKE MOAN has its merits. Deliciously colourful the film aches with rhythm and dances visually with its subjects. Whether fetishising Christina Ricci s emaciated body or making Samuel L. Jackson look years older than he is in real life the cameras do their job well. Both Ricci and Jackson offer strong performances that mark turning points in their careers. BLACK SNAKE MOAN seems less concerned with how it will be judged than with embodying the sexuality and passion of blues music. No matter how many viewers the film may offend it succeeds in creating a world that vibrates with desire and raw energy.
