Storyline

Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However her spells work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the 1970s, THE LOVE WITCH explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.

The soundtrack is great
28 March 2017 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

From the director of Viva, this has the same attention to period detail, with so much loving going into the interior detail and colour and the lavish costumes and make-up. I enjoyed this one but not as overwelmingly as the previous film. There is no lesser an affection for the genre, 60s/70s sex and witchcraft, but I don't think the genre has quite the same potential and the earlier sex and drugs homage. Clearly Anne Biller is totally fascinated with the period and whilst it would have been easy to make a comedy making fun of the films she has rightly resisted but we are left with something somewhat unfullfilling. Many have suggested this is too long and this may be so because without a strong storyline, it is difficult to get by, just on imitation and attention to detail, however successful. The soundtrack is great, much Morricone of course, and this helps and not least the fantastic performance from Samantha Robinson who gets it absolutely right in every scene.
