Stunningly mounted 1960s style occult sexploitation.

Magnificently multi-hyphenated Anna Biller (the writer, director, editor, producer as well as costume and production designer) has crafted – and that is the right word – a lush and lovely tribute to sexploitation aesthetics (just as she did in her 2007 film Viva), detailing the colourful and lovingly lurid story of lovelorn young witch Elaine (the excellent Samantha Robinson) whose love potion never quite brings the happiness she hopes it might do. A loving and seductive feminist film. [18]
