Black Snake Moan

Black Snake Moan ★★ 2007 (R)

Over-heated stew finds Jackson playing grizzled blues musician/farmer Lazarus, who's turned to religion to help him cope with his wife running off. So he's the one man ready to tackle the sex demons of abused white trash Rae (tiny Ricci in barely-there attire), even if it means chaining her inside his shack until she can control that nympho itch. Part sermon, part exploitation, wholly dull. 115m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, HD DVD . US Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, Justin Timberlake, S. Epatha Merkerson, John Cothran Jr., Kim Richards, David Banner; D: Craig Brewer; W: Craig Brewer; C: Amy Vincent; M: Scott Bomar.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

The Chicago Manual of Style

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
