Review I had never really heard many half-snorts before. Snorts, yes, and silence. But what do you make of an audience that has no idea how to react? Black Snake Moan is the oddest, most peculiar movie I've seen about sex and race and redemption in the Deep South. It may be the most peculiar recent movie ever...The performances are very good: Hell-bent for leather, and better than the material deserves, there is much hysteria and snot...I love the way that both Samuel Jackson and Christina Ricci take chances like this, and the way that Brewer creates characters of unbelievable forbearance, like Ronnie, who is in a more or less constant state of panic attacks and compulsion. And I like the understated way the rural Tennessee locations are used. You have never seen a movie like this before.

Review Mix Brigitte Bardot in "And God Created Woman" with Carroll Baker in "Baby Doll," sex it up times 10 and you have a notion of the effect of Christina Ricci in "Black Snake Moan." Part sleazy Southern exploitation pic about a wild firecat that would have made Erskine Caldwell blush, part blues-infused "Pygmalion" story about the tramp's reformation at the hands of an older black man, Craig Brewer's follow-up to his 2005 Sundance winner "Hustle & Flow" probably will find its most eager audience among college-age guys hot to ogle the young star in some very raw action.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer A roiling, boiling mix of blaxploitation, sexploitation, Tennessee Williams and the Tennessee outback.
