3 Women (1977)

3 Women (1977), written, produced and directed by Robert Altman.

A strange, drifting film, developed like a thriller that never arrives. Until, in a way, it does. Altman said it was a tale if identity (personality?) theft.

We study three mysterious women:

Mysteries: are the old couple who show up at the hospital really the parents? And the final scene where the three women seem to be living different lives...

Made in his usual spontaneous, unplanned style: "Scripts are overrated".

From some previous reviews:

...it would seem I am not much of an Altman fan, but I liked this one better than the others. His commentary track helped me to understand his approach. The director can't do everything for the audience; they have to contribute, too.

More of his thoughts:

Criterion Blu-ray.
