We went to a wedding and did some preparations for a new recording this weekend, so the most music-related thing I did was probably watch Black Snake Moan, which I didn't expect to like, but I thought it was great.
Yeah, the story's kind of unbelievable, but it's not quite as exploitative as I expected (Christina Ricci spends most of the film in her skivvies and shows off her snoobs a couple of times) but it's way more sad than it is scintillating. Her character's sexuality is so unhealthy, she's tempting in an animalistic, kinda gross way. So, it's not what you might expect.
Anyway, good performances all around, Samuel L. Jackson has a great blues voice and even MJ-wannabe Justin Timberlake does an alright job (he gets to do a lot more than just "Dick in a Box" with his character.)
A really enjoyable film with good music scenes and some surprises, it's definitely worth a rental and by more than just adolescent boys who wanna see Wednesday from The Addams Family get nasty in slow motion.
