3 WOMEN is playing at the New Mission Theater as part of our latest series TALES OF THE OBSESSED: Ingrid Goes West and The Movies That Inspired It.

«I love stories about outsiders — intense, desperate or lonely people with their faces pressed against the glass, searching for a way in or some kind of real human connection. Like their protagonists, these films don't conform to society's standards; they're wild and unpredictable, sometimes dangerous or uncomfortable to watch, but always fascinating. When Aubrey Plaza and I were making Ingrid Goes West and looking for inspiration, these were the films we kept coming back to again and again for their fearless performances and mastery of tone. Thanks to the good people at Alamo Drafthouse for letting us share them with you. Enjoy!» — Matt Spicer, director of INGRID GOES WEST

Famously inspired by a dream and shot without a full screenplay, 3 WOMEN strips away all conventions of plot in favor of an exercise in characterization and sinister tone building, and finds Robert Altman at his most Bergmanesque. An examination of the warped relationship between two women — the sweet but doltish Pinky (Sissy Spacek) and vapid modern gal Millie (Shelley Duvall) — which begins a slow descent into darkness following a near-fatal accident — 3 WOMEN successfully captures the feeling of a dream turning to a nightmare. It also stands as an example of Altman at the height of his powers, working with full and unrestrained instinct — creating a film awash in a hazy logic and chock full of visual experimentation and aural tension — making for a truly unforgettable and unnerving experience.
