3 Women (Altman, 1977): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 2.30pm

This film, part of the Robert Altman season at BFI Southbank, is also being screened on June 5th and 19th. You can find the full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Robert Altman often told journalists that he didn't want to make intellectual films, he wanted to make impressionistic films—the kind that didn't elicit discussion as much as emotion. This enigmatic mood piece is the closest he ever got to achieving such a thing, its much maligned aimlessness contributing to a subdued, haunting atmosphere. The barely-there narrative helps stitch together a tapestry of images and sounds, but otherwise plays a small role in the film's dreamlike design.
