    Years ago, when I saw this for the first time on a UHF station, I couldn't help but notice the way they blurred out all of the figures in the swimming pool mural. Seeing Altman standing next to one of them in the last still, I now know why that was deemed necessary.

    3 Women was a blind buy DVD purchase when it was first released. When Criterion began upgrading to BLU, this was my ultimate title I wanted in HD. I can't explain it but the film is just a great snapshot of a period in time (before I was even born) that kind of haunts me. 3 Women works on so many levels, that I can't put my thoughts, and feelings into words. It seemed like everyone who worked on the film gave it 100%. I visit the commentary track from Altman more than any other commentary track. the casting was brilliant and Shelly Duvall is really at the top of her game, so nuanced. I really hope more people seek out this film it really is a piece of Americana, possibly no one ever imagining it would have been when it was first released.

    This was a blind purchase on Blu, and frankly I thought it was fantastic (Criterion hasn't steered me wrong yet!). Haunting, mysterious, lyrical, and powerful. It is a strange journey to be sure, but well worth taking. Shelley Duvall is probably one of the oddest screen presences, but she is fascinating to watch (always, but especially here) and Altman seems to know just how to use her.
