YMMV: Black Snake Moan

  • Adaptation Displacement: It's not entirely common knowledge that the film is based on George Eliot's 1861 novel Silas Marner.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Rae confronting her bitch of a mother, Ronnie confronting Gill, Lazarus confronting Ronnie, and the dance scene in the bar when Lazarus performs.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Rae and Ronnie getting married and Rae clinging to Laz as he plays through the storm.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Lazarus can play the hell out of a guitar.
    • For Blues fans, this movie's soundtrack - if not the movie itself - is a must.
