Anna Biller • US
Elaine, a beautiful witch, seeks true love. She casts spells and concocts potions to seduce men, but seems to leave a string of hapless victims behind her. Then she falls hard for the rugged police detective who’s investigating her for murder. The Love Witch is striking to behold: the décor, costumes, and Elaine’s vintage beauty all recall Hollywood’s blazing Technicolor thrillers of the 60s. Anna Biller also nods to the lush, violent world of Giallo with her anti-heroine, prim princess and femme fatale all-in-one.
