Hit Me With Your Best Shot: 3 Women (1977)

Screen Shot 2014-05-03 at 5.33.17 PM

This was the first time I ever watched Robert Altman’s 3 Women, and… what an interesting film! Sadly, I’m pretty swamped with work, and college, and a million other things, so I don’t have time to write at length about it. Let me just say that, for me, the movie is all about Sissy Spacek’s performance as the creepily quiet Pinky Rose and her sudden transformation. My favorite shot, though, is the first time we see all three of the title women together. I’m a sucker for shots involving reflections, so I find this one very beautiful, but also on-point with the movie’s theme of stolen identities. It also gives hints to how the relationship between these women is going to evolve going forward.
