Black Snake Moan | Ratings & Reviews

"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..."


"The blues music in "Moan" is superfine, but my oh my, what to make of the ripe Southern cliches and this absurd story. The film is so jaw-dropping awful that it just might become a boxoffice hit..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Offensive on multiple levels -- if only the plot had any levels at all -- Black Snake Moan leaves no "Tobacco Road" cliche unsmoked. Ricci gives it her all, and then some, but even her body and Jackson's blues can't heal a movie that rockets plum off its nut..."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Perpetually wide-eyed and mega-snarly bedraggled, Christina Ricci prowls through Black Snake Moan looking like something the cat dragged in. If you're anything like me, you'll be very grateful to the cat..."

Premiere MagazinePremiere Magazine

"Black Snake Moan is a sexy, sultry and sordid drama from the director of 2006's pimp flick Hustle and Flow. Once again writer-director Craig Brewer has created a challenging, colourful film where music, this time the blues, speaks volumes about the lives of his down-and-out characters..."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"This is a terrific little film; witty, provocative, and way too intelligently put together to be dismissed as prurient or misogynist. If you're pining for the film festival, try this..."

Dominion PostDominion Post

"An electric, sexually charged slice of Southern Gothic that breaks the shackles of Hollywood conformity. You won't see anything else like it this year..."
