The film is clearly fiercely personal and strikingly original, and Biller is every bit as dedicated to her passions and aesthetic as Wes Anderson.

A veritable orgy of sinful cinematic tropes, re-purposed and re-imagined for a new time by an artist working at the top of her game.

Anna Biller is writer, director, producer, editor and costume designer of this highly stylised, witty horror, and this single-minded vision means we get a depth of richness I've rarely seen elsewhere.

The Love Witch is sweet and provocative, proving an entertaining tribute to the films of the 60's and 70's, with fantastic performances and meticulous detail from multi-tasking director Anna Biller.

Everything about The Love Witch is intoxicating - the look, the sexuality, and the straight-faced delivery that underscores the hilarious confluence of text and subtext in the witty screenplay.

"The Love Witch" is one part Alejandro Jodorowsky, one part Elvira, with a smattering of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" (aka my twelve-year-old fantasy come to life).

The dynamic between sexes is brilliantly worked.

Elaine speaks of love magic and seduction, and Biller's film has the same enchanting effect on the audience.

Biller is a preternaturally gifted filmmaker whose unique formal approach is thoroughly in service to an intellectual worldview. From the first shot, The Love Witch announces its artifice.

The Love Witch counters the darkness of its black magic with an abundance of nostalgic camp and a high level of naked titillation.

At times wickedly funny and blunt, this film is as unique in its presentation as it is retro in style, with a magnetic lead character who takes us on a journey we are positive we've seen before, only as a reflection of a reflection.

Anna Biller's bravura slice of burlesque cinema is at once deliciously innovative and delectably old school.

The Love Witch it's fascinating thanks to Samantha Robinson. The actress ends up creating a model monster: irreparably broken, and doomed to never get what she wants. [Full review in Spanish]
