3 Women

Dir. Robert Altman. USA, 1977. 2h 4m. Starring Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Janice Rule, Ruth Nelson, John Cromwell, Craig Richard Nelson, Belita Moreno.

An awkward teen working at a spa becomes overly attached to her fellow worker, a lonely outcast. They hang out at a bar owned by a strange artist and her has-been cowboy husband. Amid emotional crises, the three women steal and trade one another’s personalities. Director Robert Altman claimed this impressionistic film came to him in a dream, the result being a lucid yet incisive portrait of psychological dissatisfaction.

‘The result is remarkable -- a semi-lucid, feverish tale of female relationships that disintegrates into a kind of woozy, oppressive madness.’ ★★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Times
