The Witches (1990) ***

Like another beloved Roald Dahl adaptation, this film was made by folks who cared about the material as an end in itself. Never condescends to its audience. Nic Roeg falls in love with the fish eye camera lens a bit much here and there but overall the pace is crisp and the actors play it straight as it should be.
