Through the Black Hole » BLACK SNAKE MOAN – Craig Brewer


Written by Tony Northrup

This film is very … mis-read. Ricci play’s Rae, a MAJOR sex-addict that is pure white trailer trash, living in the South, & is a wild child with NO remorse AT ALL of what she does or with whom. After a wild drunkin party, Rae is found beaten nearly to death and discovered by the side of the road by a Southern blues musician; Lazarus(played by Samual Jackson). He takes her in & to help her, but once he realizes her sex-addict illness, he chains her up so he can keep her there to redeem her to a normal life.

An odd friendship forms & while Lazarus has to deal with his own problems after his wife recently left him. The film also stars Justin Timberlake (yes, THAT Justin Timberlake), who returns from the military & finds out what Rae has been up to. In order for Rae & her boyfriend to save their relationship, they must face & overcome their own personal illnesses.

Bottomline: This film has a moral in there somewhere and I do give it credit for that, however, I think if it was a different illness then “sex-addict”, it actually could have been a decent film, instead it is a white trash, sex crazed, confusing mess. I expected more from Christina Ricci and Samual Jackson, but maybe that will come from another film. Do not waste your time on this bizarre tale.

RANK: 1/10
