Altman's signature telephoto framing, omnipresent murals depicting demon-like creatures, and an atonal score add a creeping menace to uncanny California desert settings.

The result is remarkable -- a semi-lucid, feverish tale of female relationships that disintegrates into a kind of woozy, oppressive madness.

Throughout, Duvall is brilliant: she coins a brand-new caricature of the confident yet clueless single female, then suggests a real person underneath.

The film is rich in brilliant oddities and juxtapositions, never more so than when Duvall and Spacek are encompassed in the same frame.

Insinuates itself into your skull, and earwig-like proceeds to consume all you thought you knew of ontological security

3 Women is definitely a slow burn of a movie, but it's also amazing how well it taps into and visualizes the subconscious. Nothing is spelled out by Altman, who wants the audience to interpret the film's meaning for themselves.

Absorbing until it crashes in a tiresome manner trying to be too inexplicably symbolic.

September 6, 2010
The first half...is some of Altman's best stuff. The second half downgrades into rather pretentious and dithering malarkey

April 28, 2010
Either a maddening essay in pointlessness, or a deeply involving work that leaves the viewer unnerved and off-balance. Which response occurs depends entirely on the viewer.

Like a dream, it is most mysterious and allusive when it appears to be most precise and direct, when its images are of the recognizable world unretouched (as happens in the film from time to time) by camera filters or lab technicians.

An incisive portrait of psychological alienation.
March 5, 2005
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.

Fascinating, elliptical and enigmantic ... authentic Altman. Altman.

[A] strange, beautiful and funny film.

A spectacular artistic success.
May 5, 2004
Drawing similarities to the central relationship in Persona, Altman's impressionist work is difficult but, in its own way, sort of perfect.

[Altman] pushed even harder against the envelope and in the process created a highly unusual and wholly original picture.

3 Women is a daring piece of cinema that glides along the edge of weirdness and somehow manages not to fall off.

April 15, 2004
The end result is a film far more reminiscent of Polanski than Altman and stands as one of his most underseen but most compelling works.

3 Women is an intriguing film by Robert Altman that resides in the netherworld between dreaming and waking.
