Daisy Moan

A. O. Scott calls Black Snake Moan "Chaining Miss Daisy to the Radiator in Her Underwear."

  1. I haven't seen the movie, but the premise does seem questionable. As the New Yorker review describes the setup, "Messed up white people depend on pious, soulful black people to make them whole again. [The director's] inversion of long-discredited stereotypes smacks unintentionally of nostalgia for faithful servants."

    Chaining Miss Daisy to a radiator indeed.
