Black Snake Moan is the heartwarming tale of how a white-trash crack whore confronts her demons with the help of a backwoods negro who chains her to his radiator. Perpetually erect nipples, aching to be sucked, pinched, bit, bled. Her name is Rae. She lives in the funkiest crack of Tennessee goddamn. Ronnie, her lamb of a lover a brilliantly cast Justin Timberlake , is off to serve or rather, slaughter in Iraq.

What caused a jolt wasn't just the arresting image of a gold-toothed Samuel L. Jackson growling out a profane rendition of the blues classic "Staggerlee," recorded live in a raucous Memphis juke joint.
