The Love Witch

the-love-witch-2

(2016) dir Anna Biller w/Samantha Robinson, Gian Keys, Laura Waddell, Jeffrey Vincent Parise [120 min; 35mm]
With a visual style that pays rapturous tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the ‘60s, THE LOVE WITCH follows Elaine, a beautiful young witch, who, ensconced in her impeccably styled Victorian apartment, will stop at nothing to snare the man of her dreams.

“The Love Witch is an astonishing visual marvel: Every frame of this shot-and-edited-on-35mm film bursts with eye-popping color, and the ornate production design offers plenty of deliciously baroque details to savor.” – Kenji Fujishima, Brooklyn Magazine

“This spellbinding ode to exploitation films of the 1960s and ’70s is impressive not only for its mock-Technicolor hues and period mise-en-scène but also for what lies beneath: a creepy and cunning examination of female fantasy… Biller embraces the melodrama and vampy camp of ’60s horror while also considering the easy conflation of love, desire, and narcissism.” – Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader
