The Love Witch Directed by Anna Biller
It’s exhilarating and inspiring when a work of art comes along that defies all categories and upends expectations. That’s The Love Witch, an entrancing, emotional, intelligent and challenging picture that’s much more than the retro rumination some have pegged it as. The suggestion that it feels like the work of “the great granddaughter of Russ Meyer”… is too easy to slap on this picture. There’s a deeper, darker undercurrent lacing every moment, and it’s uniquely its own creature.

Samantha Robinson, as the “love witch”, gives one of the performances of the year.
