The Love Witch (2016) with Inkoo Kang

Anna is joined by The Hollywood Reporter's critic Inkoo Kang to discuss the stylish, witch drama-horror-satire The Love Witch.

Anna Biller's film centers on Elaine (Samantha Robinson), a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her Gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. 

I’m joined in this episode by Inkoo Kang, TV critic at The Hollywood Reporter. We talk about Elaine  as a protagonist who doesn't know she's the villain of her own story, the questionable coven, witchdom, gender politics, and where this film falls in the genre spectrum.
