HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT: 3 Women


This week's pick for Hit me with your best shot is a film by Robert Altman - "3 Women". As its title suggests, it's a story focused on the lives of three women, played by Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Janice Rule (all fantastic). To be honest, I'm still trying to wrap my head around this creepy, disturbing film. I therefore don't have much to give by way of analysis, so I'll just let my pick for best shot do the talking.

My favourite shot comes from the scene where Millie (Shelley Duvall) has just delivered Willie's stillborn baby. Bloody from the ordeal, she approaches the unfazed Pinky (Sissy Spacek) looking like a zombie from a horror film. Considering everything that comes before and after this point, I found it very unsettling.

  2. My favourite shot from this film is the overhead one of Duvall walking over the painting of the four monky/amphibious humanoids. It is a hypnotic shot.
