The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

As much as I liked Hustle and Flow, I might like Black Snake Moan better. What a brave and interesting performance by Christina Ricci, and a powerful turn by Samuel L. Jackson. Also: Justin Timberlake--who knew? He's a better actor than Brad Pitt.
Hadn't seen this since I was a kid. It's awe-inspiring, and some later Disney films (like Sleeping Beauty) look lame by comparison.
