Lazarus is an extremely religious man who is broken hearted after his wife leaves him for his own brother. Rae is the town slut, apparently afflicted with the "disease" of uncontrollable nymphomania. After a night of hard partying and sleeping around, Rae, is beaten up and left by the roadside near Lazarus' house. Lazarus takes her in and chains her to his radiator while trying to "cure" her insatiability. Eventually, the two become friends and help each other recover from their extremes of lust and piety to become more balanced individuals.

We really liked this movie so well done. Can't imagine anyone not enjoying a couple hours being entertained to the likes of this film. Other comments made were really on spot and there is nothing that I can add to improve on whats been said. Jackson played an excellent role that may reflect into his own life and values.

A great study in how early life experiences affect our present behaviour. It also shows how kindness and understanding can overcome even the worst of our memories. As usual, Sam Jackson is superb.

An off-beat movie, but very good. A good script and great acting. Loved it.

Anything by Samuel Jackson is pretty good and this is no exception.

We really enjoyed this movie. It's dark and the people damaged and troubled. But it's got heart. Interesting the way the characters work together to overcome- And the music is fantastic.

4 1/2 Stars from me

Brutally graphic or honest story of three damaged people in a rural town. Rotten Tomato review got it right: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/black_snake_moan/

A jilted husband / Blues singer devotes himself to helping a sexual-abuse victim in unorthodox fashion, enabling both to pick up the pieces of their lives. The film's attractions include Christina Ricci's lovely body and acting (in that order.) It seems amazingly easy for Justin Timberlake to play a redneck subject to panic attacks.
