The Movie: 3 Women (1977)
What Is It?: Robert Altman’s most bizarre—and best, as far as I’m concerned—film came to him in a dream, and the resulting nightmare in which blank slate Sissy Spacek becomes kooky Shelley Duvall is funny, haunting, and endlessly intriguing. A lot of movies get called “Lynchian” just because they’re weird, but this one really fits the bill.
Why Today?: Today is International Women’s Day.
