First "Black Snake Moan" Review is In 

There was a surprise screening of Craig Brewer's Black Snake Moan at something called the Butt Numb-A-Thon (BNAT) in Austin, Texas, this week. THe BNAT is an event where 200 lucky movie geeks are treated to 11 or 12 films in 24 hours.

A local blogger offers his reaction to Brewer's blues epic: "I ran into the theater just in time for the first movie. As I sat down, I saw Samuel L. Jackson on the screen conversing with a woman his age. I turned to the guy next to me and asked what we were watching. He confessed he didn't know the title, but it was directed by that Hustle & Flow guy. I nearly squealed right then and there at the realization that I was watching Black Snake Moan. Black Snake Moan turned out to be my favorite of the 11 feature films we watched in 24 hours."
