More on BSM

So I've been telling everyone I can about Black Snake Moan and how awesome it was and how surprising and all that. And I realized something else about it that's super meaningful: it takes an instrument of torture and abuse - the chain - and turns it into a lifeline, a symbol of hope and redemption.

Not unlike a cross.

Woooooo! How's that, Hollywood Jesus?! (he gets it too - as he usually does, these films)
