The Love Witch works cleverly and determinedly to expose and finally explode the tensions and incomprehensions that our gender norms so often confine us within.

Robinson, who delivers a performance that is alternately ironic and straight, is deft at bringing the whole shebang to life.

This is not a potion fit for everyone, but for a select few, The Love Witch offers powerful magic.

A glorious feast for the senses as well as for the mind.
December 23, 2016
A wildly assured, confident debut film, and one of the most visually stunning films of the year. (Splice Today)
December 20, 2016
A retro 1960s film about witches, that puts a spotlight on their supernatural powers to drive men crazy over sex.

Mercilessly carve out a third of the running time, and suddenly we have one of 2016's best, most subversively smart and deliciously entertaining films.
December 9, 2016
A modern feminist horror tale that rewards deep exploration beneath its admittedly beautiful surface. What looks like it might be simply a pure exercise in style not only invites multiple viewings, it requires them.

Biller sculpts a very unique portrait of that era without putting to shame the films, authors and the elements in which it is inspired. [Full review in Spanish]

. . . unabashedly satisf[ies] female cravings for self-validity, glamour, and, yes, love.

[The Love Witch] is different from any other movies you'll see in this or any other year.

Though it may seem Biller is mountain an assault on delightfully garish exploitation fare - with overemphatic titles like "Vixen!", "Score!" and "The Lickerish Quartet" - that's not quite what she's doing.

A vibrant and eye-catching homage to the Technicolor films of the 1960s, writer/director Anna Biller's The Love Witch is a seductive and clever twist on the gender politics, witch-centric cinema, and pulp storytelling of that era.
November 30, 2016
Written, directed and edited by Anna Biller, this candy-colored homage to trashy horror and sexploitation is my pick for most visionary film of the year.
November 30, 2016
If you're prone to acid flashbacks, watch out. Although it takes place in contemporary times (note the cell phones), Biller films the proceedings with a day-glo palette that resembles the Technicolor movies of a bygone era.
November 30, 2016
Biller proves to be an auteur in the truest sense of the word: she directed, wrote, produced, and edited the film, and created many of the spectacular costumes and set decorations. She also, quite possibly, has created a new cult classic.

There's nothing like The Love Witch, and that's a good thing, for if there were, I seriously doubt I'd be as captivated with this marvelous bit of murderous whimsy as I most assuredly am.
November 30, 2016
Biller's visual splendor is ... wasted on a mediocre script riddled with structural problems. Scenes follow another willy-nilly, as if moved around late in the process.

It's like a Bewitched episode stretched out to two hours. But boy, is it gorgeous to look at.

Really knows what it's doing. And it's hilariously funny, sometimes in an almost subliminal way.
