This movie is so polarizing... I am glad I watched it because it was gorgeous. So glittery and colorful. But I'll be thinking about the sad feeling the storyline and characters left me with. I wish I felt more empowered, which is what I expected to feel given the plot summary, except I don't. ...Read more

I saw this in theaters when it came out. First of all, the hair and makeup are simply impeccable! The attention to detail!! As for the storyline and theme, its chalk full of messages. Lots of layers.. honestly. I'm still not sure what to think of it as a whole

this movie is absolutely gorgeous and amazing subversion of the male gaze. I love Anna Biller and I love this movie, I find myself rewatching it all the time. I can't wait to see Bluebeard

Plodding storyline, stilted and leaden acting; There was a certain amount of campy fun with the 70s exploitation feel, but overall it didn't pull me in.

Its so well done that when the ridiculously funny parts happen you thought it was cheesy but it's so amazingly camp. The art direction, sets especially the paintings, clothing hair and make-up are brilliant. The music fit perfectly. It's so beautifully shot it feels like it was filmed in ...Read more

Visually stunning. Some very funny moments. A little boring in parts. Overall, impressive.

It's a shame the underlying meaning of this film went over a lot of people's heads. Visually stunning, an uncompromising look at sexuality, and a satire on the "male gaze" all compound to make this movie incredibly unique, disturbing, and hypnotizing. Anna Biller is a visionary.

Under the pressures of natural selection, the results for a bisexual species are not so much poignant as inevitable.

Great re-creation of B-movies from the 60s. Other than that, all I could think is that "Elaine" is like 40% of the women here in Los Angeles.

Respect and acceptance for those that have a different thought process than you do is important. Taron's reply confirms that I am on the right path. Honoring human sacrifice is so creepy. Thank you, Taron for confirming my beliefs. I trust you'll have many Bright Blessings in your ...Read more

This movie is certified weirdness. Hilarious, and bizarre. SPOILER/WARNING: If some weird chick whom you have never met before hands you a flask of some foreign liquid: DO NOT DRINK IT. Bad things will happen.
Mild nudity (not necessary, but boobs sell dvds). Movie was seriously infused ...Read more

This movie is a shame to all Pagans and Wiccans. This movie, portrays the female, just as in patriarchal stereotypes as the wicked of the two sexes. The Christians believe in human sacrifice every spring, this ritual in not Pagan Like. Do no harm. Shame on them for using the spiritual ...Read more

Christians do not practice human sacrifice. Christians believe that a Messiah, aka Jesus Christ, allowed himself to be killed by nonbelievers. That "sacrifice" of his life redeems any believing person from their sin. And how can you blame Christians (or Jews, or Muslims) or ANYONE for this ...Read more

Probably the most ridiculous film I have ever watched in my entire life - though it made me laugh - for the wrong reasons.

intriguing and funny. dont want to just call it a "so bad it's good" movie bc. it takes so many ideas from popular and ancient culture and exploits/parodies them so well. sexy for reals. super bent. Viewers born 1955 to 1985 , likely to enjoy.

Deliciously fun. To the comments of the disappointed, I am not sure what preconceived notions they were holding the movie to. This is not meant to topple the patriarchy. I found it smart and campy, a skillful perversion of a familiar, entertaining yet flawed genre. Not to mention it is ...Read more

There are some really really bad films, so bad that nobody remembers them, where the male hero is surrounded by clueless women. So what happens when you switch genders? No surprise, the result is just as content-free as the original. I hope that nobody will take the "feminist revision" label ...Read more

This had potential and the first 1/3 was good, but it fell apart and was too long. Cut a half hour off and it would be a much better movie.

What I love about The Love Witch is that it is unapologetically FEMME. Biller not only celebrates but weaponizes many of the symbols of femininity that have historically been brushed off as vapid, frivolous, benign, or vain. Whereas the exploitation films that Love Witch evokes cater to male ...Read more

Color! Color! Color! Maybe less of a revision of midnight cult films as it is an unapologetic feminist reappropriation of their potency and wild excitement.

Biller spares no opportunity for visual style or affectation because she knows that's how you craft a densely layered ...Read more
