Film Series: The Love Witch

2016. USA. Dir: Anna Biller. With Samantha Robinson. 120 min.

Witchcraft, tampons, and serial murder, oh my! is is the piece of erotic feminist Technicolor phantasmagoria you’ve been waiting for. Quadruple-threat Biller – as director, writer, composer, and production designer – brings her pulpy vision to the screen through disaffected performances, campy dialogue, musical pastiche, and a striking color palette.

Film Series: American Honey

2016. USA. Dir: Andrea Arnold. With Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf. 163 min.
