    1) One of the most unusual, and brilliantly nightmarish films of the seventies. 2) A prime example of why Shelley Duvall is so important to film history. 3) A timeless tribute of Robert Altman's genius. Cheat: 4) A touchstone of Sissy Spack's brilliant career.

    Using pinky's amnesia and the camera as an instrument that cannot lie sets the film on fire as a revelation to insight that the me, me, me generation of the seventies is forced to observe. For the first time in Mildred Lameroux's miserable life is she shown without any mercy or coloration who she really is and how people percieve her. Pinky is breathtaking as the newly found Mildred.

      The mural on the bottom of the pool at the swingin' singles apartment complex where Millie and Pinky live is still one of the best clues as to what in the hell is going on in this movie. Willy captures the abject horror in their lives without ever saying a word. The murals are as disturbing as they are disturbed.

    1. The pinnacle of Altman's glorious partnership with Shelley Duvall, comparable to Griffith and Gish, Von Sternberg and Dietrich. 2. Altman's restless mastery of the zoom lens. 3. The birthing scene, which is utterly horrifying on so many delirious levels. 4. Tom's cough.

    Altman has said that this was a pure dream movie and it works on the level of dream pathology, so to speak.
