The Love Witch
How do you make the ultimate love potion? By starting with a sex potion and working your way from there, naturally. Elaine arrives in small town by the Californian coastline in a blood-red Mustang ready to start a new life after a failed marriage (read: after she poisoned and murdered her husband). Now she has one goal: To find a man who will love her unconditionally. Whatever the costs.
Anna Biller, director, writer and editor of the film, has made an homage to 1970s genres like low budget horror and sexploitation, resulting in a film filled with artificial, soapy dialogue, cheesy effects and an intensely pastel-colored palette.The Love Witch is a movie about a female character with no patience for feminism, but who kills every man who disappoints her in the search for love. Biller presents feminist ideas in a refreshing way that may be hard to digest in just one viewing, yet most of all because it is too funny to have time to even consider them.
