The Love Witch

(Anna Biller Productions, 2016) The Love Witch is a masterful film that gorgeously recreates the look and energy of an Italian 1960s sexploitation horror film, but then plays the male gaze against a feminist eye cast upon conceptions of love and sex, doing it all with a viciously funny sense of humor. There is a feminine hygiene callback bit that is as funny as the best joke in a Mel Brooks film, with better timing.  This movie looks so good and is so successfully sexy and weird and satirical that it is hard to categorize, impossible to forget, and certainly should be a really famous movie that everyone watches over and over forever.
