The Love Witch
Directed by Anna Biller
Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions. She then picks up men and seduces them, but her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the 1960s, The Love Witch explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.
A modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s Technicolor thrillers
Cast: Samantha Robinson, Gian Keys, Laura Waddell, Jeffrey Vincent Parise
An odd little film. The makeup, set decoration, and surrealism are great. The acting is.... distracting. The film itself is tough to understand. I would've given this movie another skill if it had been a half hour shorter, but this was a bit indulgent at 2 hours.
Great throwback with great subtext. Cinematography, costumes, and sets were so retro and cool. If you like having to think/untangle/discuss meanings of movies, you'll love it. If you dont like having to interpret and dig deeper with movies, i can see it being annoying or borimg for you.
Funny take on the soapy dramas from back in the day.
Never seen another movie like it
A perfectly executed idea that deserves a wide audience
