Conceived in a dream this eery, surreal, and ethereal film is one of master Robert Altman’s most breathtaking triumphs with two of cinema’s most singular stars – Sissy Spacek and Shelley Duvall. Two social outcasts meet at work and move in together in Shelley Duvall’s fabulously yellow apartment in a small Texas town. Their relationship steers in increasingly disquieting ways as their personalities shift and their reality remains unsteady until a bizarre and shocking conclusion. A hypnotic and stylish masterpiece of desolate beauty, 3 Women is a transcendent work of dream logic and filmmaking mastery.
