Black Snake Moan, 2006. Three and a Half Stars.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie; the descriptions and ads made it seem like some heavy, uncomfortable shit was going to happen, particularly between Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci. I braced myself for the worst.
But, nothing awful happened! In fact, this was a really good movie! The story was unexpected, the characters were amazing, and the acting? Of course Jackson and Ricci were awesome, but, so was... JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE!! I kept going back and forth between if it was really him or not. It sure was. Hot Damn.
AND Reba the Mail Lady was in it too!
Music's a key part of the storytelling in this flick, I say. It was great. Go Samuel. Go blues guys.
A couple of parts in this movie were a bit much, but it's not bothersome. I'm actually surprised at how much I ended up liking this movie.
