The Love Witch is a weird and wonderful piece of artwork. I say artwork rather than film at the minute because I can’t stop thinking about the production design. The costumes, the make-up, the set design, the locations, all of which are perfect. When I say perfect I mean every single shot is made up in such a way that the viewers can lose themselves in the film. Personally, I love a film that makes you forget it’s a film.
Samantha Robinson is flawless and mesmerising throughout the film. She takes on the role of the love witch naturally and they could not have cast anyone more appropriate for the part. Her voice is entrancing and she is an extremely convincing witch!
This film is about love, witchcraft, death, and feminism. There are some very dark scenes in The Love Witch but also some very well done parody scenes, keeping the humour alive in the peculiar story.
All in all, this film is not to be taken too seriously. It’s a fun, slightly gruesome take on the world of witchcraft and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s definitely one for art film lovers, feminists, and a slightly quirkier audience.
