    Wonder if there are any differences between the US/UK editions, because the UK edition is cheaper:

    The DVDBeaver review (posted earlier) of the US release pretty much lists the same extras as the UK release:

    Since the US Blu-ray is region-free, and they are being released within a day of each other, it really wouldn't surprise me if the actual disc content is 100% identical.

    Mark Kermode is pretty much the only reviewer on the planet I actually watch/read/trust his opinions on.

    This is on Amazon Prime so I decided to watch it tonight given the massive amounts of praise I've read everywhere. I guess I'm an idiot who didn't get it, because I really didn't enjoy this one. It's a nice movie to look at, and it's impressive that one person wrote, directed, and edited the movie and designed the costumes and sets, but this movie bored the Christ out of me. Nothing happens and it's two entire hours long. During the renaissance scene I had to pause the movie to get up and walk around for 20 minutes because I felt like I was going to go into a coma. Am I alone here? Has anyone else seen it since it's come out?

    I totally agree with you, got through about 50 mins, and that was only due to the lead actress being so fucking beautiful! I turned it of at that point as I could not keep my eyes open, I vowed to continue to the end, but have never re-visited and I suspect I never will.

    Thanks for the heads up that I can see this on Prime. It's on my "buy" list but I'll give it a viewing first.

    Finally saw it... here is my review


    The Love Witch (2016 Anna Biller)
    This film is a tribute to 1960s pulp novels and Technicolor melodramas and follows a modern-day witch (Samantha Robinson) who uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her. The aesthetic is wonderfully realized with great attention to detail. The acting is done in what is called a presentational style but think porno acting but a little better. The lead actress is a real find and is quite hypnotizing through out and is sure go on to cult fame. the story is so-so but it wasn't really the point of the film but the music which was done by the writer/director is wonderful. Somewhere in its two hour running time is a better 90 minute version but it's worth checking out even if it wont be for everyone.
    6.5/10

    I enjoyed the film less than thing. There just wasn't enough film for the two hour run time. It felt like the film wanted to be erotic but couldn't really get it right. The funniest thing to me was the multiple times they did a close up of the lead actress showing her eyes in a "hypnotic" way. It really reminded me of Fuad Ramses in Blood Feast. Thanks again to Suicide who saved me from buying the film.
