Plot Summary

Lazarus (Samuel L. Jackson) is a hard-living ex-blues guitarist for whom the troubled days are beginning to outnumber the good. Rae (Christina Ricci) is a 22-year-old sex addict whose wild ways are finally about to catch up with her. When Lazarus discovers Rae covered in dust and clinging to life on the side of the road, he takes her in and nurses her back to health; but Lazarus isn't your typical caregiver, he's more concerned for Rae's immortal soul than he is for her physical well-being. Now, after chaining Rae down and employing the power of the Good Book to curb the salacious seductress' hedonistic ways, Lazarus will be forced to confront his own darkest demons in order to save the soul of a woman whose one-way ticket to hell has already been paid in full. Now, as Lazarus wages a righteous struggle to redeem the soul of the fallen Rae while simultaneously ensuring that his own life hasn't been lived in vain, the situation threatens to explode as Rae's possessive boyfriend, Ronnie (Justin Timberlake) — a roughneck Guardsman currently preparing for a tour of duty in Iraq — comes searching for his missing lover.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Black Snake Moan is a trip to that unfamiliar territory well worth tagging along on. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 3, 2007

Rotten: The movie strolls right past absurdity into offensiveness, by trying to pass this pulp nonsense off as noble art. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Apr 12, 2007

Fresh: This is the kind of movie that's best enjoyed as a stylized fantasy, much like Brewer's most obvious model, Elia Kazan's Southern-fried Tennessee Williams adaptation Baby Doll. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: It's a steamy, searing saga of rigorous redemption confronting creepy Southern seediness. But it's not nearly the wake-up call it could have been. – Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Worth renting but not buying.

This is a good movie to watch once or twice, but I wouldn't watch it enough to justify paying $15 for it. It is a unique movie; I've never seen anything like it. Samuel L Jackson plays a black Christian man in the American south whose wife left him suddenly. He feels the need to overcome his own sins, but he also has a lot of aggression towards women to get out. He finds a raped, beaten, drunk, and unconsious white trash blonde played by Christina Ricci and takes her home with him. He takes care of her - against her will. Everything that happens after that is really crazy, and this isn't your typical Hollywood movie. Also Christina RIcci is naked a lot.

Awesome and Excellent

This film is so good! Cristina Richie is excellent as the sex addict! Samuel L. Jackson as the healer and Justtin Timberlake as the soldier boyfried! The film is very powerful and captivating this is a must watch i hella recommend it

Great Movie.

When I first saw this movie in the theater, I was confused but, my eyes were glued to the screen, it had a little bit too much sex in it, but, it ended up being a great. :] Buy. Don't buy if immature, not for young children.
