"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

Black Snake Moan (2006) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Drama)

15 Apr, 2009 | Movies To See Before You Die / Drama

I picked up this movie only because of Samuel L. Jackson and was not having expectations of any sort from it. But the film, shocked me with its bold and raw content accompanied by brilliant acting by the lead actors. The movie is definitely not for the minors as it has some very intense and disturbing kind of sequences based on drug addiction and its sexual impact. Imagine a very young girl under the influence of drugs, tied with heavy thick chains in order to keep her inside a house.

Samuel L. Jackson, who himself is fighting with his destiny living alone, plays the savior to this over reactive girl enacted by Christina Ricci. The movie is worth watching for their superb scenes together showing their burning expressions with hard hitting dialogues. Samuel L. Jackson surprisingly plays some sweet music to Christina in a scene, which is also one of the best directed scenes in the movie. Justin Timberlake is there too giving a loving small performance as Christina’s lover.
As suggested by its unusual name, “Black Snake Moan” is a strong impactful movie talking about the bitter truths of life like childhood abuse, youth giving up to drugs & sex, mid life crisis and a person’s trembling faith in the Almighty. The director brilliantly captures the confused psyche of a young girl living dangerously with her sexual lust and drug addiction. The movie is certainly not for mere entertainment and having a good time. It deserves a good, sincere watch by the thinking viewers. A must see movie for all the grown-ups still searching their way out in this big tough world.
