One of the finer cinematic offerings you may have overlooked this past year is Anna Biller’s lavish third wave production Love Witch (2016). Building on the retro camp meticulously constructed in 2007’s ambitious Viva, Love Witch follows the witch Elaine as she pursues love through sorcery and leaves a trail of her romantic victims. With it’s magical elements, celebration of femme sensuality and power, and sixties maximalism, the film mysteriously links to elements of today’s internet youth feminism. A comforting film in the face of recent political phallocentrism, perhaps.
