I love witch movies, especially the ones where the witch wins. So, of course, I am super thrilled about The Love Witch.
It is written & directed by Triple Aquarius and Mega Mystic member Anna Biller, renowned for her brand of “narcissistic feminism.”
“The Love Witch is a film about pathological narcissism and men’s fear of women. The main character Elaine is a witch. She is not ashamed of the blood that her body sheds every month. To her it is something magical and she plans to make a witch bottle with it. Witch bottles, which may be filled with menstrual blood, urine, nail clippings, or hair are an ancient tradition.”
It’s set in the Seventies, creating plenty of room for epic retro-astro styling and kitsch witch decor. I’m there already. Thoughts? What other witch movies do you recommend?
