This was completely different than what I thought it would be, based on the previews.

It was actually more...touching (for lack of a better word).

You have an old blues singer who has been done wrong by his wife and brother. He now has is own major demons to defeat regarding his anger and pain from that ordeal. Then you have a young nympho...and well we know the "problem" there now don't we.

These two get brought together and at first the blues man intends to "cure" her of her evil ways. Chaining her in the house. Keeping her restrained...yet he never intentionally harms her and he is blind a little bit by the extremes he has gone to rid or of darkness.

In the process of trying to help her; she helps him (as he helps himself as an internal healing process...not sexually...geez people).

Some things in the movie are a bit odd. People find her in his house and they really don't make a big deal out of it. They do and they don't. But if I visited a friend who had some half-naked chick in his house I'd look at him and go "what the f***???"

The entire movie kind of tells the old adage of 'Judge not yet ye be judged'.

All in all, an okay movie. I think worth a watch if you want something different.
