I feel a bit stupid on this one. Lionized by most critics as a neglected masterpiece, I certainly liked it, and respected it's lofty aims, but didn't flat out love it. The two lead performances by Sissy Spacek and Shelly Duvall are wonderful, and the film has more than its share of powerful and creepy moments.

But the film - based on a dream of Altman's, and not trying to make any literal sense - feels overly self-conscious and arty at times. I found the music intrusive, almost shouting `see how weird this is?' And a lot of the symbolism, like the paintings that run through the film, feels bit heavy handed and obvious. Alternately some plot twists feel arbitrary, not thought through.

This is often compared to David Lynch's dream films Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway. But I found both of those a little more fun, and they felt more cohesive in their dream worlds, even if I didn't always know what was going on.

Now, having said all that, I do look forward to seeing it again. I've often found some of my very favorite films are complex and challenging works that don't jell on 1st viewings, only to have those petty annoyances fall away on a second look. In any case, if you're up for something challenging, this is a terrifically acted, unique and brave film, and certainly worth a look. And - since it's a film that plays on subconscious more than literal levels - I suspect no two people will
react to this exactly the same way.

It's no recently discovered fact that Robert Altman makes thinking movies for his audience. Here he gives us his most unusual and visually brilliant creation from the years for which he's most well known for. You hear of films being described as dreamlike, well "3 WOMEN" is most probably the only film in the history of cinema that completely fits that description. One might say Altman's not in this case interested in plot or an easy flowing structure, nor should the audience be expecting this. Instead, what we receive is an intimate portrayel of an ethereal, alien landscape. A world filled with vivid colours and haunting imagery that's not been matched in its brilliance since. Apart from the top-notch direction, what really holds the film together are the magical performances from its three magical leading ladies. The striking subtleness of Sissy Spacek, the mystical glances from Janice Rule and of course, the most unorthodox of Altman's creatures , the unforgetable Shelley Duvall. Her interpretation of the pathetic cipher suddenly morphing into a symbol of leadership is as much disturbing as it is moving. An absolute masterpiece, a must own for any Altman, Duvall, Spacek, Rule fan. Don't watch it with expectations, instead treat it the way it should be, for this film was never truely intended or meant to be understood.

Was this a case of Altman seeking to ape Bergman's more celebrated 'Persona'? Did it really just derive, as Altman states, from a dream? Is it indulgent surrealism from a director who was supported in every way by his studio bosses at that point? Take your pick as it is probably all three of these and more...

Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed the persistent, hypnotic ambiguity of 3 Women. The atonal score is deeply unsettling (and thus very apt) whilst the cast, particularly Duvall, offer convincing and poignant performances. It is hard to believe that mainstream American cinema was capable of such startling productions in the 70s when you look at the morass of banality that gets churned out today. In a decade of serial cinematic highlights, 3 Women still manages to stand out. That is a remarkable achievement in itself.

masterpiece-none the usual movie, but it is the altman style. love the two actresses and her relationship. mystery movie also, what are the relations between the three women ? the third women is also a mystery- her paintings are very agressives - are these women had the same relation with the guy ? altman gives us a acid portrait of two women in a cold way- but the movie is one of his best - my favorite altman movie.

A Kid's Review on 30 Sept. 2009
Format: DVD
I first saw this film when it was first released and I just watched it again. I was a bit worried, often films that we remember as wonderful don't withstand time and on viewing years later seem dated and dull. Not so this film!
Robert Altman is one of my favourite directors and this has got to be his finest jewel. Shelley Duvall is magnetic. This is the film that defines her as an actress. Her character is so quirky yet so real. We have all known women like this all over the world. And Sissy Spacek is the perfect counterpoint
