OFS Silver Screenings Presents: 3 WOMEN – 40th Anniversary
OFS Silver Screenings Presents:
3 Women is a 1977 American avant-garde drama film written and directed by Robert Altman, and starring Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Janice Rule. It depicts the increasingly bizarre, mysterious relationship between a woman (Duvall) and her roommate and co-worker (Spacek) in a dusty, underpopulated Californian desert town. The story came directly from a dream Altman had, which he adapted into a treatment. The film was screened at the 1977 Cannes Film Festival. It received positive reviews and a few awards, including the Cannes Best Actress Award for Duvall. Interpretation of the film has involved use of psychoanalysis and discussion of identity.

“I have seen it many times, been through it twice in shot-by-shot analysis, and yet it always seems to be happening as I watch it. Recurring dreams are like that.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“A spectacular artistic success.” – Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter
“The result is remarkable — a semi-lucid, feverish tale of female relationships that disintegrates into a kind of woozy, oppressive madness.” – Wendy Ide, Times (UK)
